Stop breaking driving laws at intersection
In the interest of public safety, we are required to learn the rules of the road, pass a test, and obtain a license from the state to earn the privilege of driving a vehicle on public roadways. In my experience, that test should be required much more often. I frequently encounter people who should not be allowed behind the wheel of a vehicle.
Driving my kids to school has often been a perilous act because so many people are ignorant of, or simply choose to disregard, the rules of the road. Illinois’ Rules of the Road states on page 25, “Passing on a two-lane, two-way roadway is not allowed … within 100 feet of an intersection.” Simple enough, one would think. So why do so many people pass in the middle of intersections?
This is a huge problem on Locust Street at Miller Road. I can’t count the number of times I have seen some hapless, elderly person trying to turn onto Miller Road. Just attempting to get to a doctor appointment should not be a life-threatening act simply because people are too impatient and too rude to wait for them to turn the corner.
