It’s still horrible to think about the wrong-way Taconic crash at the end of July, in which four children and four adults were killed. So it’s not exactly funny to read that yesterday a 75-year-old woman was stopped after driving across the wrong side of the Tappan Zee bridge, and that on Friday, some drunk Jersey dude was arrested for driving backwards on an interstate in Vermont. THREE CASES IN TWO WEEKS MEANS THIS IS A NATIONAL TREND. If there are any TV producers out there reading this, I’d like to offer my services as a wrong-way driving expert, for free.
(Say, isn’t this also the plot from that terrible M. Knight Shamalamalamalama movie in which the highways come alive and kill us?)
