LETTERS: Driving into oblivion


Did you see that red minivan drifting from lane to lane, as though the driver was drunk?


Did you see that red minivan — the one with the “baby on board” sign in the window — drifting from lane to lane, as though the driver was drunk?

How about the black sedan that was stopped at a green light for more than 30 seconds — until other drivers finally honked?

The green pickup truck tailgating you with less than a car’s length between his bumper and yours?

The blue SUV turning too sharply and bouncing off the curb, forcing three pedestrians to jump back to avoid getting run over?

Hopefully the dump truck coming at you in your lane?

No, of course you didn’t, ’cause you’re staring at your phone, too.
