Mala­hat is safe; needs bet­ter en­force­ment

Re: “Pickup rolls over on Mala­hat, trig­ger­ing de­lays,” Sept. 13. An­other in­ci­dent on the Mala­hat last week in which a pickup truck rolled. The Mala­hat is truly a beau­ti­ful and safe, yes a safe, road.

The road is smooth and the curves are hardly hairpin, yet a ve­hi­cle rolled. Why would a truck roll over on such a road — how about speed?

The ques­tion again is: Where are the po­lice? All the money be­ing spent on safety up­grades would be bet­ter spent on a ded­i­cated po­lice force.

I can count on one hand how many po­lice cars I have seen on that road over the var­i­ous times I have trav­elled it. Robert Plante Mill Bay
