    CSI……Yeah, you’re right it’s never happened before…..Just like the bedbug fetish CBS seems to have. They never happened before either….How many people have licenses, and how many are driving the wrong way? Hundreds? Thousands? Or a handful ?

      Like all imbeciles with no memory, you’ll find that CSI is also a vicious little sh\\t. As long as they’re not standing near you, that is.

    I was almost hit by a wrong way driver on St. Johnland Road in Kings Park, Saturday night at around 11pm. I can’t ever imagine being that out of it where I wouldn’t know which direction to drive in. These people are a menace.

    What the hell is going on with all these wrong way drives. I am starting to think that they are doing this on purpose. It’s only now that people are doing this. This never happened before.
