Question to a reckless driver

Jan 29, 2014 - Kim Rogers, Pavillion

Editor:

This is an open invitation to the driver of the white Ford pickup that was heading east on Highway 26 before turning left on Airport Road at around 7 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 23.

What part of foggy, snow-packed and ice don't you understand?

I don't consider passing three vehicles -- a green Buick, a Toyota pickup with Texas license plates, and a Sanjel industrial rig -- at the bottom of Griffey Hill and the rise into the city limits of Riverton a very smart thing decision.

"Stupid" and "dangerous" come to mind.

I drive this road five times a week in the early morning through all weather conditions: rain, sleet, fog or snow, mostly safely, defensively and economically.

Let's talk. I need you to tell me why.
