  1. What is up with all the “single vehicle” crashes we are experiencing now? Does this tie into any of the FADEC crashes of late?

  2. Cellphone blabbing and texting ?

    It’s like an epidemic 24hrs a day, and right in front of the cops.

    Strange how we rarely, if ever, are told of the results of these fatal accident reports/investigations
    by either the media or the police. Why is that ?

  3. What’s with all these traffic accidents in general! I’ve never seen so many in such a short amount of time. It makes me want to stay off the roads, but that’s not an option for those of us who drive long distances to get to our jobs.
