Michelle in MO Posted July 31, 2008 Share Posted July 31, 2008 This morning there was a terrible accident in our town. I haven't read the full details yet, but a local community transport bus (about half the size of a school bus) ran completely over the front end of the car of a lady/girl (not sure of details) coming out of a subdivision. She was catapulted into the back seat. Terrible. I'm not sure if she survived. There are numerous spots in our town that are accidents waiting to happen---places where there need to be additional stopsigns or stoplights, bridges over the freeway that need major repairs and also stoplights, and numerous other hazardous spots. Our major thoroughfare is going to be studied first before additional turn lanes and stoplights. I feel like our local city council does little besides concern itself with minor zoning problems. I'm going to write them a letter to address this topic; perhaps also the Missouri Department of Transportation. I don't know where to go beyond that. But---I'm frustrated. This is one major reason why we pay taxes. I wonder what it will take for some of our city fathers to wake up and get moving on road safety improvements. My oldest read recently that Missouri is 6th in the country for traffic-related deaths! Does anybody else have a similar concern for their community??
