The most recent crash occurred at 2:55 p.m. Friday.

Peggy Tyler was stopped on Lakeshore with her turn signal on, waiting for traffic to clear so she could turn into her driveway. A man in a red Chevy Blazer, also heading southbound on Lakeshore, hit Tyler's car from behind.

Emergency officials responded to the crash at the 14700 block of Lakeshore, and took the driver of the Blazer to North Ottawa Community Hospital with minor injuries. Tyler escaped major injury.

Since the article did not say if texting or talking on the phone was involved I can't say this was the case. However I am on the roads a lot not only here in GH but all over the state and if people would hang up including blue tooth head sets and not text, read message, try to dial the phone etc and pay attention to the roads a proposed 80mph would not necessarily be 100% bad. As it is people are swerving in and out of their lanes, driving too slow because they are distracted talking or whatever, driving way too fast because of the same, running stop signs, turning from the wrong lane, turning where there is a no turn instead of following the Michigan turn right to turn left traffic pattern. I have found around our area lately to be far worse than it is in other areas......not sure why but it is getting ridiculous.

Hopefully he was able to hit "send" before his phone went flying.


i know, stand on a corner of a busy street and notice how many people are busy with their cell phones stuck to their ear, maybe every third person would be the case in my observation, they should have full attention at driving, new laws did not stop anyone from driving and texting or busy talking


Stupid people do stupid stuff.


I have posted this before and will do so again. The insurance industry recognises texting and talking on a cell phone while operating a motor vehical is equall to drunk driving. We need new laws that reflect this. Get caught once major citation secound offense loose your license. Third offense go to jail. For some reason talking on a phone is socially exceptable drinking is not. How about mothers against cell phone talkers.


Texting and talking on the phone aside, I have noticed that non-locals think LSD is a super highway for their personal use and why not with no noticeable police speed enforcement present. If there was ever a need for enhanced enforcement in the GH and GHT area this is it.
