Blue CHEVROLET  Pick-Up Truck
Brunswick-Falmouth, Maine


Dear MAJOR, I hope that wherever you were in such a hurry to get to today was so vitally important that you felt it necessary to risk the safety of every commuter on 295 South. I had the privilege of following you from Brunswick to Falmouth. I watched you weave in and out of traffic at high speeds. I watched you refuse to brake or change lanes to allow a tractor-trailer and a passenger car to merge in Yarmouth. In fact, I was beginning to worry your truck didn't have brakes, seeing as how you drove right up on the passenger car's bumper before you bothered to slow down. I watched you accelerate in the left lane, slam on your brakes because traffic wasn't moving fast enough, then cut over to the right lane and back again. I prayed that everyone in your path would have the good sense and reaction time to get the hell out of your way. Whatever was waiting for you at the end of that highway probably would have been there 15 or 20 minutes later. Please do us all a favor and slow it down. I (and I'm sure many others) like to come home in one piece after a hard day's work. Thank you.
