    Gee today someone told me that lots of Americans talk on cell phones while driving and lots of Americans go five miles over the speed limit. Well lots of Americans run red lights so I guess for for this individual that makes this okay.

    My thoughts & prayers are with the victim's family. It's terrible that so many driver's are in such a hurry, and place others at risk for just a few minutes difference...is it really worth the life of another?? This is so sad.
