This newspaper brings news of two more fatalities on Lincoln County roads, after two in June.
Our sympathies go out to the families of the victims and our thoughts are with those in our emergency services who responded to these incidents.
Regardless of the causes of any of these incidents, we all need to exercise more caution on the roads – especially as traffic multiplies many times over during this peak season for visitors.
From our observations – not of any specific crash, but in general – a little patience would go a long way to improve everyone’s safety on the roads.
It is always preferable to arrive to an engagement late than not to arrive at all.
Aggression on the roads endangers not only the aggressive driver, but everyone else on the roads as well.
One of the most dangerous behaviors we see on a regular basis is vehicles going into the opposite lane to pass bicyclists around blind curves and on rises where they could easily cause a head-on crash.
We all need to exercise a little more common sense and respect for each other if we plan to survive until fall.
