Letter: Road rage outside Edwards
Edwards, CO Colorado
Why would a gray-haired old man and his wife in their speeding silver SUV stop to scream obscenities at a snowplow driver who, while plowing her driveway, ran out of gas and couldn’t yet remove the trailing snow-slush chunks from Squaw Creek Road?
I understand how snow chunks could derail a 60 mph SUV on a 35 mph road, and how inexperienced drivers might fear crossing a patch of snow. But why call me names and curse me for using my cell phone for its intended purpose, to summon help?
