    Whether you’re walking, riding a bike, a motorcycle or car there is a bad driver in Metro Detroit that can find you. This lady was cautiously walking her bike at the intersection. The Jeeper showed no caution at all.

    Who will be the next to die on Metro Detroit streets? Some of you drivers are not paying attention. Drive safely for everyone on streets and highways.

      Sadly, I know who this woman is. She leaves behind 4 children, all 4 years of age and under, with the youngest being only two months old. This was a lovely family and I am so very sad.
