Found out it’s a “she” and she also flipped off multiple other residents in the neighborhood today when she was told to slow down. The police mentioned several different charges that she will have filed against her

    Evidently the car parked on the other side of the street (facing the wrong way) has no bearing on the fact that you HAVE to drive on the wrong side to get by?? It looks like the mirror hit the box as she drove by, might not even know she hit it.

    She was going full speed down the wrong side of the road, so far over that her mirror hit the mailbox. If you look at the shadows of the vehicles, there is at least a full car’s width between the LLV and the parked car. That’s driving on the wrong side of the road. And yes, the car is pointed the wrong way- but that has no bearing on how she should have driven the LLV.
