Sometimes when I’m driving I’ll see tire marks like this, and I always wonder what happened. Did a deer jump out? Was it a drunk driver? Were they distracted? Was anyone hurt? Killed? Sometimes they look like it had to be catastrophic. In my mind they are like screaming exclamation marks, and I wish I knew the whole story. They sometimes end at a dented guardrail, maybe a bumper is left behind or a delicate pattern of shattered headlight lens. Sometimes they just end. I always find them sobering.
