The slaughter on our roads continues

I posted a thread at the weekend after learning of the deaths of four Polish men in county Cork and three young men in east Belfast. Since then, every news bulletin seems to bring more news of fatalities on the roads, the latest being two men killed in Newtownabbey this afternoon. Harry Green of the DOE has highlighted how 50% of fatalities this year have occurred at weekends or holiday periods. It seems to me that if our political leaders can agree on little else at this moment, then they should at least agree that some radical strategy needs to be launched to seriously challenge our attitudes to driving.
