A Connection?

I enjoy living in Abilene.  We love our little piece of earth we call “Charamon.”  Over the years, I have lived or had extended stays in several large metropolitan areas in the United States and Australia.

Never have I stayed a city where more people ran red lights than Abilene, Texas.  Yesterday in one short drive to the grocery store and back, I saw two blatant violations.  Never have I stayed in a city where there were more emergency vehicle sirens blaring at all hours than Abilene, Texas.

Could there be some kind of a connection?

    The “red light problem” has other implications including a general disregard for traffic laws, rules and regulations. The owners of body shops must be rejoicing.

    Those West Texans expect to road to be clear in front of them. They learned to drive in the wide open spaces with towns 30 or 40 miles apart.

    Could be…however, I’m a West Texan used to watching for deer, jackrabbits and drunks cluttering up the roads.
