Since living in Myrtle Creek, I have NOT missed the horrible traffic accidents that we encountered on a daily or weekly basis - some just fender benders, but some involved lost lives - not to mention totaled cars.We've been in Oregon for almost two years now. I have been in one line of slow moving cars as there had been an accident in one of the intersections in Roseburg. I can also remember an employee at Figaro's pointing to the line of cars on I5 and reporting how far ahead the accident was. I would have never noticed the line of cars on my own. Perhaps my eyes believe it appears more in the distance than younger eyes do.
We ran a few errands last yesterday. After we had crossed the parking lot and had gotten out of our car, Jenna and I noticed flashing lights and went to investigate. I had seen police cars and sheriff cars before - but never with lights on. It looked like a fender bender. Here in Myrtle Creek. On Old Pacific Highway. The first I have known about in the last two years. I like that ratio much better than in Utah.
