    So kenosha county wants to open beer gardens in the parks for relaxation. Isn’t there enough drinking and driving and accidents.

    OK. 2 young woman at an intersection is cause for ALERT. An Illinoi-ence running over a cops foot? You illinoi-ance people stay out of Wisc. You young females. Learn to drive. I drive for a living, them young girls drive too fast not knowing how to. This can be avoided. I pray for the parents of the girl who lost he life, and ditto for the survivor.I am not judging any one, just saying facts.

    Yes Gary, this is all about women drivers. No men have ever been involved in head-on collisions. Also no Wisconsinites have ever been arrested for DWI. But you’re not judging.

    Really?? Women drivers..Ha funny you both don’t know what your talking about. I’m friends with the woman who passed away. Also I’m from Illinois, grow up doesn’t matter where you live. There’s a lot of factors here something could of went wrong with one of the vehicles, or pregnant woman was having compalcations, and if it was drinking and driving. So before you go on about women and how they drive, know your facts first. Enough said!

    My Illinoi-ence brother was driving home from Wisconsin in 2005 and was killed by a drunk driver who resided in that lovely state. I’d probably watch how to state my “facts” sir, there are plenty of drunk drivers in both those states.
