    When other drivers have cell phones, eat while driving and other distractions it's a scary world on the road Today's mini editorial in'' our local paper "Doesn't anyone stop for a stop sign anymore?" And because they don't, we have to be extra careful.

    My brother's brain tumor was only diagnosed when he hit a semi, and only thought he's clipped his mirror. His family had been trying for some time to get him to see a doctor as he was having trouble staying on the correct side of driving lanes, etc. It's sad that it took such a terrible accident for him to realize he was ill.

    My daughter had an incident like that - an obvious drunk driver with a small child loose in the car - driving all over the highway (4-lane at 65 MPH, no less). She called 911 and told the operator what was happening, and his reply to her was, "Well, what do you want me to do about it?" He then went on to tell her that if the police pulled him over, she'd have to testify against him, and did she really want to do that.... How's that for stupid? To the best of her knowledge, nobody made an effort to even find him to check him out.

    WOW, Diana! You were lucky! Why is it that the drunk drivers seem to walk away from accidents they cause?

    You are an everyday hero, a person who does the right thing because it is right. Thank you.

    So glad to hear that you are ok. Over the years, prior to cell phones, I called the police several times from pay phones over cars going around train track bars, weaving in traffic, going the wrong way. Since I got a cell phone, the only call I've made was to report a flipover -while it was happening! The car hadn't even come to a stop yet. Fortunately, the guy was fine - he had his seatbelt on, but they still took him to the hospital.
