Risking the Roads

What is wrong with this picture?
What a mess the roads were  as I ventured to work yesterday. Were they upstate NY messy? No. But, they were far more dangerous.

Why, you may ask?

The other drivers!

In my short commute to work I had to take decisive defensive action on two occasions to avoid fairly serious potential accidents. Drivers making sudden lane changes or merges seemingly unaware of the traffic around them.

And they were!

They had failed to clear their cars of the snow and were trying to get to their destination without being able to properly see those around them. In this case, that was me!

The roads were actually fine--wet or even dry. It was the other drivers who were causing the danger to travel. 

Beware and be careful. Clear windows and mirrors!

Look and listen!
