Drivers responsible
By Greg Harris

In response to Chris Elliot's letter, as an operator of a motor vehicle on paved roadways, you, the driver, are responsible for the safe operation of said vehicle. If you cannot or will not spend the time to walk around your rig once in a while to check brake lights, turn signals, lug nuts and fluid levels, perhaps you should give up driving all together.

Check your vehicle once in a while. The 3-minutes out of your day may save your life as well as the lives of some other users of the roadways.
