    This doesn't suprise me at all, I live in this area and people around here do NOT know how to drive. Especially on HWY 42. They constantly are pulling out in front of people going 55-60mph and then going 35-45mph. I wish cops would give these jerks tickets for not knowing how to driving and driving UNDER the speed limit. I can't believe they spent all that money repaving 42, they should have widened it to 4 lanes from clayton to fuquay....So the idiots can stay in the right lane!
