Public reaction to this accident
2 in today’s at my tomahawk and 1 yesterday on the other Highway what is going on with peoples driving
People don’t know how to drive to the weather conditions, the winding road that it is,and other traffic around them.
People need to leave a bigger gap so they have time to stop. Whatever happened to the 3 second rule?
They need to stop speeding, tail gating and drive to the winding conditions. It’s not an easy road on the best of days !!! Massive trucks speeding , cars overtaking on dangerous curves. Seen it all every time we drive along that route. Maybe a police car needs to be patrolling that area or at least a speed camera.
