Utah drivers must shape up
Last week my son's preschool teacher was involved in an auto-pedestrian accident that took her life. After this incident, I started paying closer attention to the speed limit. What I noticed is that if you go the speed limit, someone will soon be tailgating you. I also noticed everyone is busy doing other things. Utah drivers, we need to slow down, get off our phones and pay attention to the road and those on the road. This will be the only way to limit the number of accidents and fatalities.

I will give Ms. Higley the benefit of doubt here and note that my title for this entry is snarky. Yes she is admonishing idiot drivers to slow down and pay attention. It is too bad that it takes the death of another human being for her to come to this conclusion.
Having a pedestrian perspective, however, I cannot tolerate those who continually excuse their treacherous behind-the-wheel behavior. If, for example, you hear of someone running down a pedestrian, there is very little rancor unless said driver was drunk. It is amazing how little regard some people have for others while traveling at (literally) breakneck speed through residential areas.
Slow the fuck down.
