When and what were you driving the first time you drove.... (General Discussion)

Sorry about that, I didn’t have room in the title for the whole question. Back in the fifties, I use to lock up the station at 9 pm and buzz through Wrightstown and Oneida and never meet one car all the way to Wabeno in an hour and a half.

Now you can wiz through Green Bay at 70 mph. Forty thousand people die on our roads every year. Every day eleven teenagers die while texting, that’s thousands. But we protest all over the country against guns. We never should have closed our insane asylums.

In my opinion 70 is fine on super highways like 41 and 29 and 43; but on two lane roads 50 is fast enough. And on two lane roads, ”no left turns”, except where there is an extra lane at that corner.

A very short time ago we had a person killed up here while waiting to make a left turn. He was hit from behind and forced into the other lane.
