Drivers should be responsible | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

We are all saddened by this horrific accident and I am personally hopeful that perhaps we will all slow down.

I have lived here for several years and Islanders in general are not obeying speed limits. Let us all look in the mirror. Why was she passing another car? As always the driver escapes, but the memory will not. That is very sad!

Rural areas are treacherous, especially after dark, and it is dark. We can blame the roads and other obstacles, but in the end it is our responsibility once behind the wheel of our cars, more so when we have passengers.

Blessings and prayers to the families in this tragedy.
