    Unfortunately thats the way it is nowdays. Seems poor quality drivers everywhere. Say apprx 80% want to be where they are going before they even left. Imo.

    Most drivers I see today have Mandals, those white ear buds, and usually are on the phone the entire time while driving.

    Yes someone in the truck that rear ended the other truck. It didn't say if it was the driver, just said someone.

    There always seems to be a bad accident in Indiana. It's flat and straight for the most part so think people just zone out. Add in the heavy traffic and almost constant construction...
     
    Bud A. and mjd4277 Thank this.

    Too much traffic, and too many people in a hurry. 65 and 70 aren't wide enough. Especially 65 between Indy and Chicago. The widening has begun but it's 20 years late.
     
    mstrchf117 and Bud A. Thank this.
