    Better have High 5 star Sheriff and Jane Sauls to have another meeting like they did recently when people complained. Better jump back up and have another meeting, which amounts to nothing. Do you two know how silly you look. Nothing has changed, everything the same. Only thing different, election coming up or neither of you would show. These two looking for votes, going to show they care. WEllllllllllllllllll......This goes on every day on that road, tailgating, passing on double yellow lines honking because you won't drive 80 miles an hour, to pacify the impatient to get where they are going. Tickets are only written for people the sheriff doesn't like. Surprising not more accidents, good brakes are in order.

    It is my understanding that DUI charges may be near.

    I have been fortunate to avoid collisions with motorists whom are not aware they drift, or change lanes, while talking on their cell. Haven't been killed yet, but have been t-boned six times, by someone running that big red thing(that was "yellow") facing THEIR direction. Biggest baddest is the fone! If you cannot keep your mind on the road in front...Just don't make any calls while forcing that 4000 pound missile down the road! Carry on...
