Driver er­ror a key fac­tor in crashes

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - YOUR SAY -

I SEE that peo­ple are again call­ing for im­prove­ments to be made to the Eng­lands Rd round­about and its ap­proaches.

The vast ma­jor­ity of trucks go through the round­about without in­ci­dent and yet one op­er­a­tor comes to grief and the prob­lem is the round­about?

Was it me­chan­i­cal fail­ure? If not, was this the first time the driver had used the round­about or any round­about for that mat­ter?

No com­pe­tent driver pay­ing at­ten­tion to the road and pre­vail­ing con­di­tions should have a prob­lem with any rea­son­ably main­tained road fa­cil­ity.
