Re. High speed main factor in traffic deaths (Letters, June 8).
I’m glad to see I’m not the only person who thinks blaming accidents on “slow” drivers to be absurd.
It’s funny how no matter how fast that first car is going in the fast lane, it’s never fast enough for all those drivers behind it. Twenty, 30 or 40 km/h over the limit, it doesn’t seem to matter.
If you want to see a string of cars speeding like idiots, stacked like cord wood, just go to the highway.
Rain or shine, with one or two fools weaving in and out in high speed bumper-to-bumper traffic, trying to get ahead. If not now, just wait five minutes.
I can only assume they don’t care about anyone lives, never mind their own. It’s a good thing the government is going to add more lane barriers on the Malahat. If nothing else, at least one lane might be kept clear during the clean up after some driver kills a car full of people.
But don’t count on it.
