There was a pile-up south of Fresno in the TuleFog just
before Thanksgiving a few years ago.
Headlines claimed 115 cars involved.
A week later the newspaper corrected to "only" 87 vehicles!
DAMN!
none-the-less

When I left work in Central Florida about an hour after that accident the skies to the southwest of us looked wicked.

BUT the roads in the photos in that article do not look like they were all that wet if at all.

HOWEVER, what people do NOT understand about the roads here is that even a slight drizzle of rain can make our roads slick as if there is ice on them.

It brings oil to the surface of the road causing cars to slide out of control.

WE who live here...and have for years and years, know to drive accordingly. But we have become a melting pot of people from all over the world, and they have not been trained
how to drive here.

It becomes a nightmare to drive around here when a rainstorm
pops up. NOT to mention that we no longer require the young people or new drivers to complete driver's education.

You take your life in your own hands to drive here. AND it is okay to text and drive here...

ALL a deadly combination in the state of Florida.

Okay. I'm done!

Also add all the elderly who drive. Some of whom shouldn't be out of the home, let alone on the roads.

I passed by there must have been just minutes before it happened. People were driving like it was Friday.

Oil on the road can be a problem anywhere. People should know better.

Only in Flo-Ri-Duh. This accident is just as bad as the near gainsville I75 accident that involved FHP and Smoke.

These same idot Flo-Ri-da drivers do the same stupid thing on I75 alligator alley.

Also b4 we go off blaming Elders, Snowbirds and everybody else. I wonder who was driving what and how many non FL-plates if any. This is just Flo-Ri-Duh being Floridians.
