Laws not sug­ges­tions

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

I travel from He­ber Springs to Lit­tle Rock and sur­round­ing towns sev­eral times a month. Ev­ery trip I am re­minded that driv­ers do just about ev­ery­thing be­hind the wheel ex­cept drive.

On our two-lane roads I ex­pect to find ve­hi­cles cross­ing into my lane while the driver texts, eats a burger, ap­plies makeup or is just not pay­ing at­ten­tion. The in­ter­state is worse be­cause driv­ers do all those things but drive at ex­ces­sive speeds, well over the speed limit.

Come on, peo­ple! Drive with some re­spect for oth­ers’ lives, if not your own. Those signs on the high­ways are the law, not a sug­ges­tion. DEANNA PUCKETT
