... and throw away the key.

I spotted this story crossing my news feed this morning: One killed in Holly Springs collision. Having lived in Holly Springs, my interest was piqued enough to read further.

The North Carolina State Highway Patrol charged Carla Romero, 20, of Angier, with involuntary manslaughter and three counts of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

Investigators said Romero was driving at about 80 mph in a 45 mph speed zone....
[Emphasis mine.]

How much of a hurry do you have to be in to do 80 in a 45 zone? What urgency could justify such recklessness? Is the Law merely a suggestion?

And how little regard for the lives and safety of your own passengers — not to mention anyone unfortunate enough to be in your path — must you have to endanger them thus?

Someone acting that way says, in effect, "my immediate desires are more important than either the rules of the road or the lives of anyone sharing the road with me."

It's stupid.

It's selfish.

Ultimately, it's barbaric.

Lock her up.
