Memento Mori

I saw a flipped SUV on the way in today, right at the junction of 405 and 520. It looked like the driver had taken the turn too fast for the rainy roads, or swerved while merging. In any case, he flipped it onto the roof, destroying all the windows but (fortunately) not collapsing the frame. Fire and ambulance people were already on the scene. Of course, everyone slowed down to take a look. For some reason, I prefer not to gawk at the gas, glass, and blood in these cases.

Drivers are nuts.

burn SUVs, burn!
Well, at least it was a wrecked SUV and not a sensible automobile (he says with a "stoopid SUVers" 'tude). One fewer on the road...

I don't much miss the Seattle traffic. In fact, that's the thing I most hated about the Puget Sound. If traffic had been as fine there as it is here, driving out there would have been a dream, what with water and mountains and forests. I still recall the Volvo madman who tried to kill me on my motorcycle on 520. Gak.

The traffic has gotten a lot better since the unemployment figures hit 8.5% or whatever they are at for Seattle now. But the drivers are still crazy.

And the Volvo people, they seem so *sensible*.
