Letters: On another road fatality

Wednesday January 29, 2020 Published in Letters to the Editor

I don't know whether to feel angry or sad.

 

Each time there is a scooter tragedy everyone wants to put regulations in place. The scooter regulations are there already: stick to the speed limit, don't drink and drive, be 16 to hold a driver’s licence, and a helmet should be worn at all times.

What more should be done?

How many more souls must we lose for people to wake up!

During my visit to Raro I saw so many young ones doing wheelies on the back road with no helmet, and not a care in the world if there was oncoming traffic. It just goes to show how the generation now days lack respect, and how inconsiderate they are to others that are using the roads.

This is the first time a motorbike accident has really triggered me, and I can only imagine the pain these families are having to go through.

To our parents, akono ta taua tamariki, to lose a soul this young is very heart-breaking. My condolence to the families of this tragic accident, may the Lord be with you all during this difficult time.

Te’a Crocombe
