I was headed to an appointment yesterday. I noticed this Burgundy Mini Van coming up fast behind me. This Mini Van went into the left lane passed and went around me at about 50 mph (in a 35 mph zone). As we proceeded I watched the Mini Van pass no less than 3 Cars ON A DOUBLE YELLOW LINE and on an incline. I continued to watch the Mini Van as it speed along at about 60 mph in a 45 mph zone. The Mini Van literally came to a SCREECHING HALT at a stop light at which point I caught up to it. (Begging the question......If I wound up at the same spot as you at nearly the same time....why speed and break traffic laws??) On the back of the Van were all kinds of stickers and magnets.... "I love my Kids", Jesus Saves Jesus is coming, My kid is an honor student" and so on. There was also a little Family of stick figures showing the Mommy, the Daddy and 5 kids. I then looked at the driver and saw a 30 something year old Mom ON HER CELL PHONE (we all know how I feel out this!!) and 2 Babes in Car Seats behind her.
This whole thing made me MAD! First the whole excessive speeding and breaking traffic laws thing. Then the Driver inattention thing with the cell phone. And all this with your Children in the back seat. I would think that a God fearing woman with five precious gifts would care about her Family's safety and well being.
Actions speak louder than words
