Northern Ireland is reeling to day from a black weekend on the roads as six people die in four different road accidents. This BBC report – Six die in carnage on NI roads – has all the details as they are presently know but it cannot convey the pain of those families left without loved ones. The latest deaths bring the number of people killed on Northern Ireland’s roads this year to a total of 97.
The toll of deaths and serious injuries continues to grow on our roads. Our thoughts are obviously with the latest victims in this continuing tragedy but we have to ask:
Is there no way to stop the carnage?
Can we continue to pack more and more cars onto our out-dated road structure andexpect not to have serious accidents?
How can our roads be made safer for all users?
What would you do?
