To the Readers' Forum:
We all have done stupid things. And we hope that no one sees us when we do stupid things. But we need to think a little more about who might see us do stupid things. Here is the story:
Stopped at the railroad crossing on Quaint Road is a school car, four-way flashers on, obviously doing what is required by law to do: stop, look and listen before crossing the tracks. Another car is behind the school vehicle patiently waiting to cross also.
Then comes the "Van.'' The driver blows past both vehicles, over the tracks at a high rate of speed and roars off into the morning sun. Literally going like a bat out of blue blazes!
At one point, the driver of the van may have had more than one lapse of brain usage - the van is owned by a well known business, logo all over van, vehicle number, you name it. DUH!
It's one thing to do stupid, it's another to advertise.
Thank you for giving us the info from your vehicle. It wasn't reported to get you in trouble, it was reported to keep someone else safe - like the schoolchild in the vehicle.
Hopefully the next time will never happen.
This is not posted to hurt your feelings, no names are mentioned, it is a "courtesy thought" for everyone to have.
Please be safe and courteous.
