A sug­ges­tion for im­prov­ing high­way safety

The Telegram (St. John’s) - - FRONT PAGE -

Let­ter: We al­ways want to blame ac­ci­dents on high­way con­struc­tion, no pass­ing lanes, or the con­di­tion of a road. It is about time that driv­ers started driv­ing smarter, safer and more re­spon­si­ble.

We al­ways want to blame ac­ci­dents on high­way con­struc­tion, no pass­ing lanes, or the con­di­tion of a road.

It is about time that driv­ers started driv­ing smarter, safer and more re­spon­si­ble.

If it is so im­por­tant to be some­where at a cer­tain time, be sure to leave home early enough to get there safely.

I am a firm be­liever that all po­lice cars should be well marked, mak­ing their pres­ence more vis­i­ble to the driv­ing pub­lic.

We often hear mo­torists say­ing that they drove all the way across the prov­ince and never saw a pa­trol car.

This should never be so.

The sight of a pa­trol car does get your at­ten­tion! Hu­man na­ture will cause you to make sure that you are driv­ing within the speed limit and pay­ing proper at­ten­tion to the road and your driv­ing.
