    Meanwhile, we have to pay big premiums to a “one size fits all’ Insurance organization…NOT FAIR. I am 72 and NEVER have had an accident on our highways…but I pay the same premium as these assholes, almost…give or take the small penalties that are levied against them for major infractions! And soon I will have to take a test to see if I am safe!?? BS!

  2. Is that the same Dave Colwell that just moaned about the poor folks that got all their belongings (and trash)
    washed away in the floods. Now he’s showing incredible empathy for folks in driving accidents in the snow!
    Dave , we pay premiums so that we SHARE the troubles with those less fortunate than us!

    Well “Donny” a.k.a. Mr or Ms.. “Incognito”: This has nothing to do with those less fortunate, it has to do with those who drive carelessly to the point that they cause accidents which kill and maim. They should pay more for their insurance. And I have nothing against camping but it would better if they used a campsite that was legal and cleaned the site up a bit. It is called consideration. Try to be a little less bitter….You might feel better!

    We need more enforcement on hwy 99 period. The supposed 60k zone through at the entrance of the valleycliff intersection on the weekends is a joke!!! Watch the people running yellow lights, red lights lane switchers through town doing the whistler 500!!
