Daily Rant&Rave: Travel circle driving rules

RAVE To the middle school students who put up posters in store fronts on Queen Anne Avenue urging all of us to reach out to isolated elderly people with a phone call or visit. What a great idea! And thanks to the store owners who assisted by making their windows available.
RANT To drivers approaching traffic circles from the right who not only fail to yield to approaching cars on the left, but race through the intersection. Speed is not a “force field” that protects you from your own recklessness. You don’t have the right of way, and your speed is a menace to drivers and pedestrians. Rave to those who slow for these traffic-calming circles.
