      LOL, do you see the irony in 'BOB' calling this person stupid. The statement itself is grammatically a wreck! ha ha

      lol by your statement their Bob, I am glad you can not drive either, however… Mike, I am pretty sure he called the driver stupid, not the victims

    My drummer was killed on Route 283 accidentally driving the wrong way back in October… Idk whats going on there but somethings confusing driving at night in one of the those intersections.

        Thank You. I remember when all of this happened to us the people who left comments on the site said dumb things like Bob. No one ever thinks about the family or friends feeling on the subject. I'll pray for the families and wish the best for them

    I've driven 283 since it's been built, the problem is stupid drivers not paying attention to what they're doin! 7 out of 10 drivers on the road are totally clueless.
