Everyone always complains about the varied driving practices of the many drivers from many states in the area. So now I have my own story.
Today on the HRBT, a goose decided to cross the road. It did not get across unscathed. A truck ran it over and the duck limped away. A highway worker was at the other side of the road appearing to want to help it. The person ahead of us braked sharply. We braked just in time. The person behind us did not. At least she was moving slowly, damage was minimal, and everyone in the three car accident is fine.
We are quite grateful for how well things turned out. And now I have an interesting story about a goose causing a multi car accident. It was an interesting day.
