Pet Peeves

I have to vent about ONE of my biggest
Pet Peeves!!

These last few days we've gotten a little snow.
And that's fine, being that it is December and all.


I absolutely get my nickers in a twist
when people don't clean the snow off their vehicles!!

They clear off a portion of the windshield and leave
the rest on, to blow off and obscure other drives visibility!!

How lazy and inconsiderate some people are!!

Last night when I left work it had already stopped snowing,
was dark and I had about an inch
of snow on my van. The wind was blowing some too, but
I got out my handy snow brush and cleaned my entire van off.
(bumper to bumper and the roof too)

Other folks that were leaving just jumped in their rigs and sped off
snow trailing them.

When I got out on the highway heading home (rush hr traffic)
the visibility was soo bad
from snow blowing off vehicles that speed was
reduced to about 30mph - for 10 stinking miles!

It amazes me that people don't realize how dangerous
not removing snow from their vehicle can be.

Do you have an opinion on this?

Only 20 more days till Christmas
and I haven't even started yet!

I see that all the time too. It makes me mad when a person doesn't scrap the frost off the windows too and they can hardly see. Did you know you can get a ticket for that?

I agree! I makes me mad when people dont clean off their head lights or tail lights!!
I"m almost done with Christmas I think. I need to get stuff packed up to mail to my sister and Bills dad, but I think the shopping is almost done. Of course, I'll always think of something else. And, I think we'll go to Anchorage on the 18th, so I can go to WalMart!!

I agree wholeheartedly. I too clean my vehicle off properly. I've got most of my Christmas shopping done and will ship packages today. It feels good. Sorry you aren't there yet.

I have to admit that I'm good about scraping off all the windows and lights but don't always scrape off the top of the car.

It's a law here in PA that you have to clean the snow off your vehicle. I just try not to go anywhere when it snows so I don't have to deal with it.
