Deaths prompt plea for safety

Isis Town and Country - - OPINION - Melinda Brad­ford Re­porter melinda.brad­ford@isistc­

I’M not usu­ally one to get up­set but, af­ter re­cent fa­tal­i­ties on our roads, quite frankly I’m ap­palled.

It’s an un­der­state­ment to say it’s not pleas­ant to hear re­ports of th­ese tragic ac­ci­dents, see pho­tos of the carnage, or speak to the families whose lives have been torn apart.

Last week’s dou­ble fa­tal­ity took the re­gional road toll to 15 for this year alone. That’s 15 lives that have been un­nec­es­sar­ily cut short, which has caused an im­mea­sur­able amount of pain for the vic­tims’ families and friends.

When is the mes­sage go­ing to sink in?

Ev­ery­one has a re­spon­si­bil­ity to drive safely on our roads.
