Writer says safety answer is to be 'road aware'

Lorne Holler
Opinions are personal viewpoint of the writer

This is my opinion only.

First off this is almost like guns, people blame the guns for killing people.

Guns don't do the killing the people operating them do the killing, thus highways don't kill, vehicle operators do.

I have noticed that most that most people are
- 1) in a hurry to get where they are going
- 2) are texting and driving or are using the phone while operating a motor vehicle.
The changes that were made to the by pass and north 55 required change. I have noticed that most people don't like the change.

My suggestion is be alert while driving, and get the bigger picture while driving. observe the traffic ahead of you for any dangers. I have also seen a lot of people run stop signs they don't even slow down for them; I have had to either slow down or stop because someone ran a stop sign.

So I say be road aware. --Lorne Holler
