We live near Oregon Expressway. Several times this morning, we saw ambulances speeding down Oregon, presumably to rescue victims of traffic collisions. Almost all of these injuries are preventable if drivers use common sense and slow down and pay attention when driving, especially in dark or wet conditions. Turn off your cell phone and leave extra distance between you and the car in front of you. Come to a complete stop at all stop signs and stop lights. Roads are extremely slippery right from water, motor oil, and debris on the roads. Your tires and brakes work poorly in these conditions and most of your fellow drivers haven't driven in the rain very much in recent years.
