We don’t think we’re telling you anything new when we say it’s tough on our local roads lately, with almost daily accidents and road raging and, sadly, people even losing their lives out there.
NEWS24/680 readers signing up for our Flash Alerts have told us they do so largely for our highway advisories and information about the most recent mishap – so they can avoid the resultant pileups.
And that’s fine. But we’re hearing about car-to-car exchanges with everything from beer bottles to gunfire being exchanged between carloads of travelers not so road weary that they don’t have time to engage their fellow commuters in all types of rolling skirmishes.
Our advisories are usually met with gratitude and a stream of “you won’t believe what happened to me”-stories so we thought we would open this up to readers with accounts of their highway travails. What sort of motorized mayhem, or Good Samaritan stories, have you seen out there lately?
