    how sad, i see some people flying on these roads down here, i moved here from morrisville, and i love it, but there are some that you will see texting, no paying attention going around a curve, i couldnt tell you how many times i have slowed down just so i didnt end up in a crash with the other person,, also, deer, there are tons of them and i do agree with the other that wrote,, it is overpopulated here, with the subdivisions, compared to the roads, and the deer, i dont know how many times when i come home at dusk, you will see 20 plus in the farm field near my house, and plenty of them are out jumping in front of you.. prayers go out to her and her family, i wouldnt doubt it was a deer, day or night, they run out in front of you, they have nowhere to hide anymore

    You guys should be ashamed of yourselves for turning this into a political battle and hatred against johnston county. I'm from the same place and I'm the same age as this girl, 21, and you guys are the ones acting like children.

    SueInNC.. I've lived ALL over this country. It's the same no matter where you go. Doesn't matter where you are.

    The roads are dangerous around here, no doubt, but if you're careful and if you don't hit something unavoidable (like a deer), you should be thankful. The drivers in NC are some of the worst I've seen on the east coast.

    Haygrower, I grew up on a JoCo farm. Spent a few thousand hours on tractors and "croppin' baccer." I love the farm life. But if you think JoCo could have sustained a reasonable economy without that "unwanted" growth, I think you're mistaken. Look at the counties in the Northeast corner of the state. That's what they've got, and they're in BAD shape. Growth is not the problem. And we've kept up with the growth overall. Property tax rates are not out of line with other counties (much cheaper than Wake)and we have a great school system, social services, sheriff's office, etc. Crime is no higher than other similar places in America. And violent crime has actually DROPPED in the past 20 years. I know I'm not going to change your opinion. But I AM going to share the opposing point of view.

    So Jim Hunt is to blame? And he ain't even running!

  • Haygrower Oct 10, 2011

    thanks Perusing--the population growth --you can thank our past GOV FOR THAT Jim Hunt--couldn't keep himself in N.C. and look after the farmers and working people here had to go all over the world to try to recruit development to NC--said we needed the jobs --and a group of us country folks who are stupid in his book tried to tell him that times like these are coming and everything is going to be over croweded and unemployment was going to be high--OH NO he said---it was all about votes--now he sits back and enjoys his retirement at the expense of us country folks who enjoyed NC being country --now you see subdivisions where cows used to graze-wheat and corn used to grow---he did more harm to this state than fran & floyed put together--Crime is high--drugs a big problem-schools running over--farmland lost---roads have to much traffic --I could go on and on but not enough print space--all this started during the reign of jim hunt---thanks jim for the start of the ruin of NC

    Part of the issue is the HUGE population growth in JoCo. Two lane roads that were built many years ago when the surrounding area was nothing but farmland now handle traffic from subdivision after subdivision. The infrastructure has not caught up with the increased population.
