I fail to understand why drivers in Alberta need to be in so much of a hurry that they continuously put their own lives as well as the lives of others at risk on a daily basis!
The last 3 days in a row (not counting the weekend of course), there have been major accidents on the way to work that have resulted in highway closures.
The first, had Highway 2A between Red Deer and Blackfalds shut down. The second on the following morning occured on the overpass between Highway 2 and Highway 11A. This resulted in a partial if not full closure of Highway 11A. This morning, another accident on Highway 11A saw traffic into Red Deer closed off.
I can only assume (though the odds are high) that speed is a factor in all of these accidents, especially considering they all occured in the morning rush. Did anyone die? Injuries? How much money does this cost society? It uses up our rescue services, policing, insurance rates climb... people who must find alternates routes are seriously late...
Looks like these people didn't get anywhere any quicker.
SLOW THE HELL DOWN.
