Driving Through High Water – Think About It


After spending most of last night wide awake in our basement watching the local weather reports, I’m once again frustrated by the poor decisions of some of our local drivers.  Every time there’s any significant amount of rain there are certain areas of town that flood – Every time!  And each morning you can count on hearing news helicopters passing over on their way to show live images of drivers who made an attempt to drive through the high water and ended up stranded.

Really people?

This morning was actually even more exceptionally disappointing.  A school bus ended up stranded and had to unload all the unlucky children in the water so they could be transferred to another bus a few blocks away.

Here are my thoughts – charge them!  Give them a ticket or charge them for the time and services of the city workers who have to come “rescue” them from their own ignorance.  Police officers have better things to do than spend their time slugging through a foot or two of water in order to reach a struggling car.  We can charge a homeowner if there is a false alarm report of a fire so why can’t we do the same in this instance?

Ridiculously Frustrated,
