Please slow down,  23 wrecks in the past 2 days.
State troopers clocked someone doing 106 MPH in my construction zone on the  496 corridor.
It's my worker's life's and yours..
Please,  if you see orange.. slow down.
I don't want to go to another closed coffin funeral again.

I certainly hope they arrested whoever was going that fast through there.

I usually drive 10 over on the highway, the one exception being construction zones, where I follow the posted signs.  I have a couple of friends who have had some serious close calls while working on the shoulder/road.

Stay safe.

Personally,  I always do,  and I rarely exceed the posted limit.
I just aint in a hurry to go anywhere,  and it sure as hell aint worth anyone gettin dead over.

Why is everyone in such a damned hurry?  

I've been passed by fast movers on a road that literally went from nowhere,  to nowhere.

Why don't the cops do anything about it?

I see them sit there while cars pass them at 15 or 20 MPH over, and they do NOTHING.  Yet, I got a seatbelt ticket in the 25MPH metropolis of Roscommon.

Damn, hopefully that guy is in jail.

Chukar, you ever find a place to live around here?

Not yet,  staying in the Candlewood off Forest Rd.,
I was looking/waiting for a place in Grand Ledge but someone is dragging their feet.
Corporate is also waiting to kick back the per diem.
I like the area off Saginaw,  lots of options on places.

Met one of your "representatives " at Lenny's in Lansing....
Education was the first priority,  didn't give a fuck about roads....
What a waste of space...

Sounds like they work for the teacher's union, not the citizens....
