Repeat of Deadly Weekend Car Crashes in Charlottesville

Perhaps it is the lovely fall weather in Charlottesville that is causing such mayhem on our highways. Veteran's Day weekend has been highlighted by several deadly crashes in the area. The sad part of this report is that the deaths were preventable. A deadly car crash on I-64 claimed the life of a truck driver who was not wearing his seat belt. The restrained driver of the smaller car survived. The obvious lesson is to wear your seatbelt. In another accident, the two passengers of a drunk driver were killed. The drunk driver survived. Another obvious lesson, don't get in a car with a driver who has been drinking. The purpose of this post is not to cast blame, but to spread caution. The highways and roads of our communities are dangerous when simple precautions and safe driving techniques are not used. Don't be a victim. Think before you drive and as you drive.
