    Running red lights in Greenville and those hateful 4 way stop signs in the county are out of control . . . and a heck of a way to get the attention of a cop!

    You think people are bad about running red lights...let me tell you there are a lot of driver who don't stop for stop signs on country roads. Could not tell you how many near misses I have seen. People SLOW DOWN and save a life!

    People are always running red lights in Greenville area. I think this lady should get a big fine and maybe community work. We need to set an example on these red light runners. I don't car how old she is, SHE ran the red light and caused the accident. We need to get tough on this. It's not a student that did this it was an older lady. I have seen young people running red lights BUT, I’ve also seen older people running them to. The laws have to change and deal with these types of people. They are killing us.

    Don't blame students. I was almost totaled by a dump truck from Greenville Paving going the wrong way on Cotanche street in heavy traffic. I stoped and very fortunately the dump truck stoped also as it was carrying a load of gravel for the endless Reade Street project. I have alos had two cars totaled by Greenville PD officers one on duty and one off duty. Both accidents were the officers fault.

    This sort of thing happens frequently in the uptown area of Greenville. Usually students going the wrong way on a one way street. I have almost been hit many times by bad drivers blowing through intersections with stop signs and texting, using cell phones and totally distracted. I hate driving there and would not if I didn't have to. Had one woman turn in front of me going the wrong way. She blew her horn as if I was the one not paying attention. She had to swerve to miss the other three cars behind me.

    The patrol car wasn't even close to being totaled.
