    I don’t like hearing of crashes where people are not paying attention or where they feel they don’t need to yield. Hubby had the right of way just a few mins ago when someone at the stop sign on Brigham rd didn’t yield to him. He hit the brakes hard and slid sideways just to avoid them. They other guy looked at hubby like it was my hubby’s fault. HELLO???
