Don’t keep blam­ing the road

Franklin County News - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

‘‘It’s the roads fault’’ seems to be the go to an­swer for ev­ery ac­ci­dents now a days.

My fa­ther and I while go­ing to Huntly got into a dis­cus­sion about the joy of driv­ing. I told him I’ve lost this feel­ing, ev­ery­one is in such a hurry, tail­gat­ing and cor­ner cut­ting, putting my life and oth­ers in dan­ger.

I fear driv­ing now. I live in an area sur­rounded by peo­ple who are will­ing to kill them­selves and their loved ones by driv­ing so fast and un­safe just to get some­where ear­lier.

I ex­pe­ri­enced a ute speed past me in a 50km area only to spook a horse which caused the young girl rid­ing to get thrown off. An­other driver in a 50km area, tail­gat­ing, sped pass and drove right through a flock of geese and killed the lot - this was aw­ful to see.

Noth­ing seems to scare these driv­ers, they will tail­gate you
