One thing I've always enjoyed about Ohio is the interesting scenery. Here's Big Sugar (Pioneer - Michigan Sugar), one of the few landmarks (natural or otherwise) on the drive to Columbus.
I was just North of Delaware when I ran into this train wreck, and it got me to thinking (since I had little else to do and was not distracted by the scenery).

Lately, and I should amend that to the last 10 years or so, I've noticed a distinct increase in the number of people who are willing to run a red light. Usually they make it, but not always. I watch other drivers weave back and forth while they send text messages, screw around with the kids, put on makeup or do other, equally important (to them, anyway) distracting things while Road Rage Reilly tries to make it to the bar on time. They tailgate, they weave in and out of traffic missing other cars by a few feet, or in some cases a few inches. What they don't do is drive safely, and drive defensively.
I know there are cops that read this blog. Isn't there some way a few of these complete assholes can be pulled over and told, in your best cop voice, "Knock off the shit, ass wipe, or you're going to jail and your heap is going to the impound lot. You understand?"
Sure it's only one car, but it's a start. Sort of like deporting illegals. My left wing friends tell me that, "You can't deport 11 million people!" To which I reply, "Maybe not, but we can deport 1 or 2 million, and that's a good beginning."
As for me, I'm headed to breakfast, then back down to Columbus.
