Thinks biggest factor in fatalities is driver inattention
Comments re article 57077 Peggy Fudge comments on another deadly accident
By Maury E. Lewis
If I read the report correctly it said that the driver ran a red light.
It had nothing to do with the way the road was built; it has to do with the attention people are paying to things while they are driving, or not paying attention to things while they are driving.
Yes it is sad that someone's life was taken but with all the distractions that are on the road today we must become more alert to what is going on around us. - Maury E Lewis
Thanks, Maury. I don't think anyone would agree with you more than Peggy Fudge as far as driver inattention as a factor in fatalities is concerned, but I'm not pretending to read her mind. In fact that was the thrust of her commentary, as far as I understood it. However, drivers with CDL's and without CDL's were predicting the that the design would lead to accidents before the road was opened. Tragically, they were right too often. In fact, the Burkesville Street Speedway, many believe, is the result of flawed design more than enforcement. Most think it will take better design, lower speed limits, better driver education, and increased enforcement to bring the unconscionably high fatality rate down. -EW
