You know - the way people drive here in CT, you would think you're in the Daytona 500! Everyone's speeding ahead of each other, cutting someone off to get another lane that might be faster than the one they are in. If just take a moment to think about what we could do (as a driver) to make it safe driving for everyone, I would summarize it to PATIENCE! Allow a safe-braking distance between you and the car ahead of a little courtesy and let the person who needs to merge in your lane get ahead of you - and just SLOW DOWN....I GUARANTEE you will get there, but it doesn't have to be in record time because you're not going to win anything when you get there. There are so many "little" things we can do to make driving safer in CT for everyone - be patient, be courteous (even if the other isn't) and just slow down a bit!
