We saw that van on Rt. 28 in E. Falmouth. It was crabbing sideways.

I passed this big rig today, looked liked the Beverley hillbillies rolled into town. Hope Jed and jethro are ok, had a wood stove smokestack too 🤔

I hope they’re all okay. I’m guessing speed was a factor...? The most I go is 5mph over the limit, depending on driving conditions. I still get tailgated aggressively on that road. I have a technique that works if anyone else gets annoyed or angry when someone does that.. look in the review mirror and just say out loud, “You are irrelevant.” Then back to driving. The best reaction to an aggressive driver (in my opinion) is no reaction.

Thanks.

One car accident? 🤔 Regardless, I hope everyone is okay but that’s suspicious.
