Yesterday there was another accident at a busy, light controlled, intersection near here.
The same intersection The Lovely Harvey was rear-ended at.
I'm sitting there waiting for the debris to be cleared with a deputy standing next to my driver's side window.
I roll down the window and say to the deputy, "You know what would stop accidents from happening here? They should put in a light!"
The deputy got nailed by the grenade joke.
A common refrain at county commission meetings on our two main roads after an accident is that a light would have prevented it (often when a light clearly would have had no effect).
So, fellow residents of my county, I apologize for rendering a deputy unfit for duty for several minutes.
