    People just need to have consideration for others on the road. Have respect! What bothers me the most is when people cant live without their cellphones behind the wheel, or put their makeup on before leaving for work. Just today, I saw a man eating cereal from a bowl behind the wheel. So many stupid people out on the road today.

    I know someone that lost their fiance last year for this very same reason; someone backing out of their driveway and not paying attention. People need to be more aware of what's going on around them. Senseless loss of life and something that could have been avoided had the driver been paying attention.
