Dangerous drivers

Letter to the Editor

Posted: Monday, September 23, 2002

A quick traffic quiz relating to the recent power outage in Juneau: As you approach an unlighted intersection, do you; (a) Stop at the intersection, treat it as a four-way stop and then proceed with caution, or (b) pretend that only you have a green light, then mindlessly blow through the intersection being completely oblivious to other traffic that is also using the intersection. If you answered (b) then you are an idiot! During the recent power outage in Juneau, approximately one-half of the drivers I saw at intersections practiced answer (b). These drivers are a menace on the highways and should not be allowed the privilege of a drivers license. Come on Juneau drivers, think when you are behind the wheel!
