Cruel complacency

This is what the BBC News Tyne & Wear webpage looked like today.

BBC news webpage 7 April 2013 

News websites can be so cruel in conveying messages. Let me read them out to you.

The More regional news section, hosts four road tragedies. Whilst weather is good. And the A1 is slow.

Cumbria - Pensioner dies following car crash on A596 bypass between Thursby and Wigton
North Yorkshire - Elderly couple killed in crash on Northgate Lane, Gate Helmsley
Tees - Two killed in three car collision on Teesside with a third person is in a critically condition
South Scotland - Man dies in lorry and pick-up crash on the A74(M) south of Lockerbie

We are also informed by From other local news that a Cyclist dies in Durham road collision on A6072 between Shildon and Bishop Auckland

I won't go into the Doubts raised over A1 dualling article. It's such a messy political subject.

Maybe one day we wake up and open our eyes to the car-nage on our roads and do something about it. Meanwhile, may they all rest in peace, and the survivors join the chorus of road safety campaigners.
