Bar­ri­ers save lives

Sentinel-Review (Woodstock) - - OPINION -

Re­gard­ing the ar­ti­cle Killer crash charges boost drive for 401 safety bar­ri­ers (Sept. 30).

I would not be sit­ting here to­day read­ing The Lon­don Free Press if it were not for the bar­rier sep­a­rat­ing High­way 401 lanes head­ing east to Toronto.

Last win­ter dur­ing a snow­storm, a ve­hi­cle in the on­com­ing lane lost con­trol and slammed into the con­crete bar­rier just as we passed. Other than the shock of wit­ness­ing it, we con­tin­ued on with­out miss­ing a beat. If the bar­rier had not been there, it would have been an en­tirely dif­fer­ent, life-shat­ter­ing story.

Ac­ci­dents hap­pen, but if we can pre­vent more from hap­pen­ing on our high­ways, it’s a no-brainer. Bring on the wall.
