Well by now, we should all know that there are two ways to drive
on the roads and streets, around and about Ketchikan; either
WAY TOO FAST, or WAY TOO SLOW.
Now driving way too fast, means you're getting to your grave
that much more quickly. Driving way too slow, can mean the same
thing, but at least your wheels are turning, and you are getting
from A to B, even if it is too slow for those behind you. And
speaking of that, there is a law on the books about the number
of cars stacked up behind a slow driver; if it's over five cars
you're supposed to pull over and let them pass.
But, here's a couple of things I've noticed about slow drivers,
one, they have forgotten to look in their rear view mirrors to
see if there is any traffic built up behind; and they also step
on their brakes when approaching a turn in the road, that the
recommended speed is STILL greater than that they are traveling.
One thing about living on an island with only two-lane roads,
you will get there eventually, so you might as well slow down,
and enjoy the trip.
Yours in safe driving,
Alan R. McGillvray
