    I agree with Paula. Most drivers of SUVS think that they have more control. They tailgate and drive extremely too fast regardless of road conditions.

    We should just be thankful that nobody got hurt. In the end that is all that matters.

    I drive an SUV? I take offense to your comments. I see quite a few mini-vans, cars and trucks in accidents as well. Everyone needs to respect what ever type of automobile they are driving and also watch out for the people around you that drive carelessly!

    This is a message for you SUV drivers. The SUV that you are driving is giving you a false confidence. You still need to drive as cautiously as someone driving a compact car.

    Anyone else notice that all these accidents in Eau Claire lately seem to involve SUVS? When will these drivers begin to realize that they cannot go as fast as they think they can?
