Dangerous portion of roadway needs to be fixed

July 3, 2013
The Alpena News

Two more accidents in front of Walmart.

Last week a motorcyclist was hit and injured. Thursday four people were taken to the hospital. Fire and rescue personnel and traffic were tied up for hours, and three vehicles were smashed.

Michigan State Police troopers are investigating. Really? What's to investigate? Simply put, an impatient, careless driver, poorly designed access and apathy caused this accident.

Think of the costs involved: medical bills, equipment and personnel costs, lost wages, vehicle replacement or repair and then add in pain and suffering.

Luckily no one died ... this time.

When will this dangerous stretch of highway be made safe and will that happen before or after someone pays the ultimate cost.

It's only a matter of time and that should scare the @#!%$ out of all of us.
