Fast & Furious on Providence Road
I sure hope you were having some kind of emergency, since you found it necessary to pass me on a winding country road.
Otherwise I have no idea what would have caused you to drive the way you did.
Here’s a couple of tips:
That double-yellow line? That means you’re not supposed to pass.
And that marker you ignored at the intersection? The red one? It’s called a stop sign. You’re supposed to stop at them, not hit the gas and barrel right through.
Sure, it was early. But if someone had pulled out into that intersection from the crossing direction, you would have slammed right into them.
Maybe you thought I was driving too slow. I might have been. That’s because I recently was reminded of the speed limit on the road by Upper Providence police.
Did you know that the speed limit when you enter into Upper Providence is now 35 mph? I didn’t, despite the sign proclaiming exactly that.
Wouldn’t have made much difference. When I was stopped, I would have been over the old 45 mph limit as well.
So, yeah, I drive the speed limit on that road these days. For anyone else who drives that road early, the good officers of Upper Providence tend to hang out around St. Mary Magdalen School. Consider yourself warned.
Why don’t you try doing the same. Or at least obey the simplest rules like a double-yellow line and stop sign.
Before you kill somebody.
