    Correct RONDA1991 but for some un-American reason WRAL does not allow direct criticism of the government. You have to obfuscate your comments when criticizing the government on this site.

    Bad drivers strike again. If you insist on driving badly then please do it on private property only.

    If only there were organizations that were responsible for public safety and keeping bad drivers off the street.......
