    Let us see if the TOBYHANNA 500 will slow down to 45mph!
    I don’t like to drive home on 380 and 81 when work gets out at the DEPOT!
    It’s VERY DANGERES, it’s like the INDY 500 race with all the bobbing and weaving between cars and trucks…….

      Wait, you’re telling me that a government paid for car pool, with 7 overweight people is not following the speed limit? It must be some of those workers that the rules don’t apply to. You’d have to be a fed to understand that.

    What about those of us who can actually drive and have a vehicle suitable for the weather? Why waste my time going 10mph slower when I can handle it. We live in PA, get use to snow or get out.

      WOW THIS IS EXACTLY THE BACKWARDS MINDSET THAT IS GOING TO COST INNOCENT PEOPLE THEIR LIVES. ITS JUST F-ING COMMON SENSE TO SLOW THE F DOWN WHEN THERE IS ANYTHING BUT DRY ROAD. WHAT A MORON. THIS WAS DRIVERS ED 101. HOPEFULLY NATURAL SELECTION TAKES YOU B-4 YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEATH OF AN INNOCENT THAT IS INTELLIGENT ENOUGH TO DRIVE SAFELY.

    • Drive faster!

      WINTER DRIVER, if you can, try to tangle with about three semis today. I really enjoy that “WOW” factor when I tune in at 6 o’clock to see you people’s boneheaded trail of destruction!

      Winter Driver, you certainly know little of what PennDOT’s responsibilities are. Number one is protecting the rest of us from moronic drivers (like you) who think too highly of themselves.

    Translation:
    We are about to pay for all the salt used this year and man hours worked in speeding tickets.
