      I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but drivers in the Grand Rapids area are absolutely HORRIBLE. I’m from the Detroit area, and yeah, we drive fast and crazy, but at least we know how to control our cars. These farmers are too used to tractors than cars!


        I went to Detroit every week. Driving fast and crazy and controlling your car is still stupidity. As in just the few days Id been there for just those few weeks. There was so many accidents. So i can imagine what its like all year around. So making a stupid comment on this article about drivers from here and where your from. We don’t care about you being from Detroit and how you start accidents with your crazy driving. Umm hello grand rapids is the safest and another thing your fast and crazy stupid driving is what causes accidents. Preach that in detroit. There’s a reason there called accidents. Not the cause of accidents. Unlike what you pretty much admitted. Have a nice day and next time read the article and have a HEART. We don’t care where your from. Go back there.

    I’ve lived in the GR area all my life, but have driven in many areas of the country, especially the east coast and south. I think GR has some of the rudest drivers anywhere. In most areas if you want to merge or pass, other drivers make way with a smile. Here they act like they own the road and someone’s trying to steal it. Stubbornness, macho, meanness? I don’t know, but whenever I return here and get close, it’s like, “oh, yeah..I’m back home!”

        I think ur comment is extremely rude. Shove ur puns up ur anal cavity maybe it can assist ur brain in coming up with an intelligent thought. These are children, one of whom is passed away, both of which never asked to be in this situation and didnt do any thing wrong with their driving. People run lights and horrible accidents happen it doesnt mean all ppl are rude drivers.

    So we have accidents over here in GR….there accidents. I am pretty sure no one ran a red light intending to kill a young man. Detroit is not some wonderful place least our incidences are accidents not drug deals, gangs, and murders. So before u run ur mouth about children and unforseen car accidents they didnt even cause maybe u should use ur brain and think instead of being such an insensitive. Asshole.

    Praying for the families and friends of all involved. This young man was friends with our children and part of their lives. So sorry kids.
