Problem is behind the wheel

To Mr. Kaer (“SUV drivers out of control,” Dec. 30), stupidity and rudeness are universal, and neither has anything to do with what you drive.

If you choose to live in an area where it snows, then it is your responsibility to prepare for it. Just because a person has car keys does not give them the right to go out in their unprepared vehicle, get stuck and block traffic. This applies to the overconfident SUV driver as well as the completely unprepared car driver.

Granted, the snow removal in our area is a joke, but if you are unequipped to deal with it you should stay home. Drivers do not have the right to delay traffic, cause accidents or risk others’ safety by being ill-prepared. Unless or until our snow removal improves, those inexperienced driving in these conditions should all take a class, not just SUV drivers.
