    Fortunately the driver wasn't hurt but seven people were taken to the hospital with minor injuries. All of them have been treated and released.

    There's no word on how Smith did on her driving test.

    Blah. Florida drivers are all old. In experience, I find drivers in other states to be much younger and more reckless. Sure a lot of the Fl drivers drive slowly, but at least you don't have to look out for weavers constantly.

    I was at the DMV last year and there was an old man holding back tears because he failed his driving test. He drove himself there and had no relatives in the state.

    ^ damn...ahaha.

    Actually, technically by national survey Minnesota has the best drivers and the most friendly drivers. Thus the saying, "Minnesota Nice," and well...i guess overall we're suppose to be the nicest state (as in like ppl, not national environments or buildings).

    Anyone (from Canada) remember the woman who ran over a couple of teens, said something about her being under stress in court, and was set free?

    Just be glad none of you have ever experienced the FDR Drive.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Florida driving is ridiculous. NY-NJ maybe crazy, but at least most people are very competent drivers. In Florida, I worry about reaction times, etc.
