speed demons


Once again, my other part on drivers in Arizona. Overall, they are better drivers than in Texas. But besides their brights in rural areas, Arizona drivers REALLY love their speed.

Now, these drivers normally control their speed fairly well. I’ve only felt in danger twice. Once was heading to work on an early morning. A construction company worker was staying no more than a half a car length behind me, both at 45 mph and 65 mph. I couldn’t shake the guy. He finally sped by me after about 3 miles.

Then, just the other day, I was in a work vehicle heading to take care of a customer. My technician and I were about to pass a car and a semi truck traveling in the opposite direction. This semi was in such a hurry to move on that he started moving over AS WE WERE EVEN WITH HIS CAB!! Dangerous!

The question is: Where is law enforcement?

There is maybe three state troopers that patrol that road semi-regularly. But if they aren’t around, people break this law. Tribal police rarely, if ever, patrols this.

It is almost like the wild west out here!!
