Caution on Country Club Road
March 19, 2009
Be careful on Country Club Road in the mornings, when the "kids" are heading to MCC.
This morning I was driving from MCC back to Woodstock at 8:25AM and met a young woman driver in a hurry on eastbound Country Club Road, south of McConnell Road. Although eastbound traffic was heavy, she was passing other eastbound cars in the hilly section of Country Club Road. She was driving a grey Jeep Commander or Cherokee - couldn't get a good look at the license plate - might have started with C15-.
Traffic appeared to be moving at the speed limit and was heavy. I wonder what her big hurry was. Late for an 8:30AM class? Big deal! It looked like she had at least two passengers in the car.
Just what's needed on Country Club Road - a head-on accident; right? Illegal passing is an easy ticket, unlike speeding, where police officers and deputies might see a driver they "know" is speeding, but can't prove it.
Let's hope the County deputies will "set up" there a few mornings and grab some of these reckless drivers. To pass in a hilly 40MPH zone is not "careless" or just illegal passing; it is Reckless. The other students in her car should have been screaming at her to slow down and stay in her lane!
