    this area and used to live did bring up north and south. the reason there arent these kind of accidents happening near nyc is more people are using public transportation there. spew this crap to someone who doesnt know what your talking about. Go back north, maybe you'll be safer.....NOT

    To "me"--I wasn't making this a north-south thing. I didn't say these kinds of accidents don't happen up north. I said that they didn't happen near NYC (despite the massive amount of traffic there). The problem is how people drive in country areas on narrow roads (in the country in NJ, as you point out, as well as in the country in NC and in country areas all around the US)-- people need to slow down and pay very careful attention because a mistake is much more likely to be fatal than in other kinds of driving situations.

    Andie, I think U need a reality check. The most horrible and rudest drivers I have EVER seen R in NJ and NY. Been there many times over many years. Evidently U were one of the ones driving with your eyes closed or sped off from an accident U caused. Like I've said before, LUV the SOUTH or take a hike, up NORTH preferably!

    It's that new Wal Mart and the crime that's causing all these accidents in Greenville.

    Melissa, I concur. It is very annoying having small pictures.

    I am so tired of the way you post the pictures! Please figure out how to make the pictures "clickable" so they can be enlarged!!! Thank you and I hope everyone is okay!

    Get out of the way baby, cause I'll leave you in my dust going 65 on them dirt roads.

    What is wrong with people?! I can't believe how many serious accidents happen in this area. I used to live outside NY City and it was nowhere near as dangerous to drive there! PAY ATTENTION WHEN YOU DRIVE AND SLOW DOWN, if not for your own benefit then for the benefit of people whose lives you might otherwise take. And to local law makers: drop speed limits, especially on 2-lane country roads. 55 MPH is too fast.
