I am sick and tired of hearing how it's the road that is to blame.
The roads all around the Lower Mainland are not to blame.
Drivers speed, pass when it's unsafe, and ride my rear bumper when I'm on the road. No matter where I drive, there's always someone behind me, inches away from my vehicle, agitated because I'm not going fast enough for them even, though I'm driving 10 km/h over the speed limit.
No matter what is done to 16th Avenue in Langley, the road carnage will happen as long as there are idiots driving it.
I'm sorry for the people who get killed.
But people: wake up! It's you who are causing these accidents, not the road.
People need to get off cellphones, slow down, leave room between them and the vehicle in front, don't pass over double solid lines, and concentrate on their driving.
16th Avenue is a great, smooth road. The wrong thing is being blamed: roads, gravel trucks.
Township Councillor Charlie Fox is wondering why there are more fatal and serious crashes on 16th Avenue [Fatalities prompt call for changes, Sept. 18, Langley Advance]. It's not rocket science. Let's not spend a lot of money now trying to fix something that isn't going to fix anything unless people start to drive better.
