@Money - 5 minutes? Nah... They're saving 1, possibly 2 minutes at most. If they're gonna be late, it's a matter of how late they're gonna be.

I drove RaceWay 83 for 13 years. Started taking the gravel on nice days just to avoid the hassle. Retired a couple of years ago. Don't miss that death trap for anything. They (and I used to be one of THEM except for the 112 MPH part) will never ever learn.

BDay agreed but I drive on 83 everyday I work and the worst driving is from Minot to Glenburn...North of Glenburn isnt bad. But most of the vehicles in the ditches and overturned are drivers from out of state.

A few weeks ago it was really foggy at night and the roads were ok and I was being passed by people who had to been going 75 mph+ one was from Kansas the other was Florida.

The worse time to drive on 83 is from 6-8...people coming and going to the base. Even in the summer when roads are great it just amazes me the stupidity of the drivers going well over 85 changing lanes cutting people off just to get to work 5 mins sooner.

Really, a lot of us native North Dakotans are in the habit of blaming out of state drivers for all inexperienced, irresponsible, and careless driving. But that is just a poor generalization. Recently, it seems I've seen so much more speeding and reckless driving and, because our law enforcement has higher priority issues to deal with, no consequences. I've watched cars run stop lights and drive 40 mph in a 25 mph zone right in front of a police car. I believe the real issue is that people-from all states-drive however they want to because they know it very unlikely anyone will confront them. Why should they follow the law if there are no repercussions for not doing so?

The base needs to teach the personnel assigned there who have never driven in snow before how to do so, then maybe so many out of state licensed cars won't wind up in the ditch.
