Driver Caught Recklessly Eating and Drinking on 6 + 50
Sometimes I wonder what goes through peoples heads when they are driving in Grand Junction. Texting, on the phone, and messing with their hair or makeup is bad enough. But I have never seen someone do this until now.
I have seen a lot of crazy things while driving here in Grand Junction. People taking up two parking spaces versus one. Driving in both lanes when they should stay in their own lane. I have seen people putting on full makeup while cruising around. The list goes on and on.
I thought I had seen it all. Then it happened on Sunday.
After spending a great morning doing errands, and enjoying the sunshine. I turned my vehicle onto Highway 6 & 50, and began to travel east. I noticed a car that was swerving while driving fairly fast. Normally I would excuse this behavior for being in a hurry and just not paying attention as one should. But this was not the case.
As I pulled up next to this individual. I looked over to see a full sized salad in one hand, as he was feeding himself with a fork, and drinking a bottle of water. I had to look twice as I could not believe what I was seeing. Yep, indeed a FULL salad, at 45 mph. I have heard of people being health nuts but this is taking it a bit far.
I would really be curious to know what you have seen on the streets of Grand Junction. If you have seen truly bad driving skills, share it with us. Tell us about it, heck, grab a photo, or a video and share it with us here. I know I am not the only one who has experienced craziness on the roads of GJ.
