So true.

34 years in the Mid Atlantic, and I never heard of this happening on such a constant basis.

Me thinks not just a Florida issue. A Quick Google search.

-Police: Wrong-Way Driver Causes Crash on Westchester Highway
-A man is dead after he drove the wrong way on Long Island's Southern State Parkway.
-2 Dead After Crash Involving Wrong-Way Driver in Michigan
-Since 2011, at least 22 people were killed and more than 100 others injured in crashes caused by people -driving the wrong way on Interstates in Massachusetts,
-State police: Drunk, wrong-way driver crashes into 2 in Millbury
-Mass. lawmakers eye wrong-way driving prevention after fatal crash
-necn Investigates: Why Are There So Many Wrong-Way Crashes in Massachusetts?

More people, more cars, more highways, more drunks/impaired drivers.

Seems to be a frequent problem in many states these days.

Pasco is just another example of More people, more cars, more highways, more drunk/impaired drivers.


However, I would not call the good folks of Pasco "Ignorant", that's rather a rude general statement that is not on subject.

He threw that my way as a insult. He has followed me around like a clown in other threads to harrass. I have a feeling a change is coming.

275 is really dangerous. I drove from St Pete to Brandon/Riverview for work for almost two years. There was many wrecks everyday. When it rains the bridges are usually at a standstill at rush hour and the same at Malfunction junction where I 4 and 275 split. People always driving like maniacs rain or shine. Keep in mind in this Tampa area you got retirees, Transients, Vacationers and College Kids, So a lot of high risk groups. Who have no clue where they are going and sometimes it causes major issues.

Another wrong way crash (not on I-75 though) took life of innocent 23 y.o. girl. The driver who killed her and himself was not confirmed as being drunk, but based on public records he had someone impressive history from being involved with cocoine sales to careless driving and speeding. He also was featured on Hernando Sheriff's site as someone wanted in 2012-13 or so (they took warrant picture down after someone commented under it they wish he was cought and jailed back than - innocent girl woyld be alive now)...

I am so sick and tired of people complaining about faulty design,co fusing roads and so one whe every freaking single wrong way accident was driver's fault! There is no proof from stupid people...
