European agrees that driving in Summit County is a guessing game

I felt I had to write in response to Glenn Vawter’s letter of Feb. 10 and say how much I agreed with his comments about bad driving.

Being a European, it took me a few years to get used to the fact drivers here in the United States would be overtaking me on all sides and, therefore, I needed eyes in the back of my head.

I, too, am amazed at how anyone can drive without using that lever on their steering wheel that gives the courtesy of letting the person behind them know which direction they will be turning without referring to a crystal ball.

But the drivers who are the most worrying are the out-of-state drivers who have no concept of how much distance to leave between themselves and the driver in front and wouldn’t be able to stop if their life depended on it – which it often does.

One kindness I miss terribly is the one whereby someone takes pity on you when you are trying to pull out onto the highway at a difficult junction with no traffic lights and lets you through.
