Many annoyances

| Saturday, June 20, 2015, 9:00 p.m.

Things that bother me:

• In the old Save-a-Lot parking lot along Greensburg Road in Lower Burrell is a Dodge Intrepid with two flat tires and expired registration and inspection stickers. It has sat there for about year.

Where are you Lower Burrell police? Could there be a body in the trunk?

We'll never know if nobody acts.

• I see U.S. Postal Service white Dodge Caravans driving around without license plates. What's the deal?

• Drivers who ignore the “No Turn on Red” signs, like the one on Bridge Street at the New Kensington Sheetz. The New Ken police stake the area out once in a while and add to the city's coffers via fines.

• People who use their cellphones/smartphones while driving. Don't get me started!

• People with nothing to say who won't shut up.

And on that note, I'm outta here.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
