This morning, I woke up to hear of an accident on the 5 freeway, a big rig from Smart and Final that had crossed the center divider and struck cars in oncoming traffic. Also this is the third or fourth accident I have seen or heard of involving a big rig in 4 days. If you drive the freeways, you also have seen in the last four days, as I have, multiple serious auto accidents on the roadway.
In most parts of the country, drivers face rainy day driving without incident. There are less accidents in those cities and States than in ours. Why is that.
If my experience is anything like yours, the answer is simply stupidity. As I was returning from the office Monday in the rainy weather, I noted several drivers traveling at speeds that are normal for our freeways on dry sunny days. Weaving in and out of traffic and hugging the rear of the driver ahead, I could not help think that this was an accident waiting to happen. On an oil slick road, in inclement weather, why are they not thinking it would be safer to travel a little more cautiously?
Truck drivers are equally faulty. Stopping distances are greatly increased by roadway moisture, and oil that accumulates from cars all year long, Our roadway surface is like ice on our first rains. A big rig, that runs into and over a center divider, is simply traveling too fast for the conditions of the day. Unfortunately if you are at the wrong place at the wrong time, you will be a victim of this stupidity.
