I'm not even posting ALL of the news stories about the wrong way drivers - for instance, there was a wreck on a secondary road up in Pasco County....

call it a vigil to promote awareness of the problem -one person might read that it's happening and may save their own live by keeping in the righthand lane and not reading their texts and being diligent while behind the wheel.....you don't seriously think a thread about the problem on CDF actually causes the problem to recur, do you?

We were on 75 N this morning and the signs started flashing that there was a wrong way driver reported. We immediately got off at the next exit.

I think it is to the point where maybe we should start posting when there is NOT a wrong way driver.

Alcohol + Driving does not end well for anyone.......eventually.

Another sad story. Just breaks your heart to see loss of a police officer......



RIP Deputy John Robert Kotfila, Jr.










I wanted to use Selmon this a.m. 7 a.m.ish and it was closed up. Didn't realize until now that it involved another wrong-way.

I can't imagine how in the world this person got passed the gates on Selmon.

High conviction means enforcement.
