Vehicles driving at excessive speeds and swerving in and out of traffic. Cars touching bumpers every now and then and a few of them spinning out of control.
What did it remind me of? A typical commute on Route 422!
Whether headed west from King of Prussia or east from Reading, driving Route 422 can be a nightmare for anyone. While the above Associated Press photo from Sunday's NASCAR race might be a bit of an exaggeration, there are a lot of reckless drivers on the highway every day.
One night last week I experienced something on Route 422 that I had never seen. Driving west through Amity, a car in front of me did a U-turn and began to head east -- in the westbound lanes!! I looked in my rear-view mirror and there was traffic behind me in both lanes. The last thing I saw was the driver who made this ill-advised maneuver darting into the shoulder to avoid a head-on collision.
I just wonder how Ryan Newman, Jimmie Johnson or Tony Stewart would have handled that.
