    I hope I see the day when the police put first time offenders in Jail. What happens to this family now. If you can’t leave 15 min. early stay home. These men and women do not need the pressure on them. Slow down Save a life. These are people with families not robots.

    As the wife of a PenDot worker I am asking everyone to please slow down in construction areas. As a driver I feel the frustration of the tie ups and delays. The people working along the roads should not have to suffer for tho.
