    Wonder if the Minivan driver had their turn signal on?…Nobody uses turn signals anymore, guess they assume we’re all mind readers or too frakin lazy to push the lever.

      Perhaps the 70 year old man should pay attention to traffic stopped in the road. He was clearly in the wrong yet lets blame the guy who you assume didn’t have his friggin blinker on!

        I hate to be contrary but I have and shall continue to use my turn signals because that is the way that I was taught. With the younger generation well that is another story, they ( the younger generation) feel entitlement, if they don’t want to they are not going to. As far as this elderly gentleman goes, may I first say, MAY HE REST IN PEACE and may his family find solace in memories of him. Is it possible that something caused him pain that resulted in him not looking forward, There must be at least 6 different reasons for this accident but only one for this man’s death, it was time for him. (Think about it).
