    The construction on 94 west has introduced idiots into the 894/45N/S corridor to get around, specifically around greenfield and watertown plank exits. They drive with no regard for others, speed through construction zones and weave in and out of traffic. I’m fairly certain this is exactly what happened, provided the car wasn’t stolen and it was a kid driving, although the former still seems to hold truth.

    If you think it’s bad now, wait until the Brewers start playing.

    I have never seen so many drivers speeding on why 45 in my 27 years of commuting! They blow through the work zones at 20 over cutting in and out of traffic like complete idiots. Most of them seem to be white males 30 -50 yrs. Could they be not getting up early enough and in a hurry to work or for their Prostate exam? Mr sheriff please slow the commuters down on the highways with some speed traps.
