If the speed limit in Ketchikan
is too slow for you...

Today at lunch time I passed a car wreck. It appeared that the
small car rear ended the truck. On the way back to work, only
the small car was still on the road, the young lady had red eyes
making me think that she was responsible for the car wreck. I
have noticed that in this town, especially at the lunch hour,
you really need to be vigilant driving thru town. The pace is
fast and if you are not careful, you too can rear end the car
in front of you. I really try to give people space, especially
when the road conditions aare bad. I try to stick to the speed
limit when I am driving. I notice that even when I am going the
speed limit some people will be right on my tail and some eventually
will pass me.
Yes, I am the yellow truck
going the speed limit and I am not going to go faster just because
you are in a hurry. I have never been ticketed for speeding (knock
on wood) and hope to never get a speeding ticket, if I do, it's
for an emergency and justified, at least in my mind.
So, to the drivers who read
SitNews, the next time you are on my tail, go around as I am
not going to speed up for you and if the speed limit in Ketchikan
is too slow for you, move to the city!
