Do this, don't do that, can't you see the sign?
I think many of these people don't realize that residents actually live near their playground. Some of them drive cluelessly on the road down to the river, a narrow two lane affair, not easy in the best of circumstances. We have had to dodge several of them, on our side of the yellow stripes, mostly young and on their phones. It gets very dangerous.
The day before yesterday the narrow road was blocked by a large white truck. I couldn't get through. The occupant, a young tall kid, was jawing with my neighbor. Later I was told that he had been driving recklessly up and down the road at top speed and had got himself stuck. She was giving him hell when I drove up but I really didn't know what was transpiring. He told her it was a public river and he would do whatever he wanted. It's not.
When he left, he tore out past me and sprayed rocks all over my car. With a smile. Like a total a-hole. I had nothing to do with their conversation, learned later he had been speeding up and down the road like hell with his little blond girlfriend. Hope that I run into him again.
So it was cool today to see the sign at the head of the trail. Trail closed.
Because people feel entitled. And act so irresponsibly. Now if we could only close the road too.
