|Thousands of drenched automobiles and trucks
Hit our region’s roads and highways
During the sloshy early evening commute,
Barreling through poor visibility and fluid-like traction
To reach a dry, homey destination during the rainy deluge.
Aware of these slippery, onerous conditions
Which plague the tiresome, splashy roadway on this day,
Many cautious commuters slow to a more moderate speed,
While other less patient motorists drive at a much quicker pace,
Ignoring the speed limit and other safety concerns.
Although bad road conditions often seem like a dog
Whose bark is worse than its bite,
A horrible disaster can be avoided by seeing
Everything which can be struck by your vehicle -
A distraction can lead to much damage,
Discomfort, and injury,
And an eye-popping clean up and repairs
Which lasts for several, cost-laden weeks.
