bienvenu 2 years, 7 months ago on Finishing four-lane highway to Tri-Cities will save lives

Oh I so disagree!

This country is trillions of dollars in debt and the last thing we need to do is spend ten's of millions more on some back water road.

What needs to be done is for people to pull their heads out of rectal defilade , lay off the lead foot syndrome and slow the bleep down. I'm sure no one wants to hear this but, whoever was driving the car that attempted to pass is a murderer.

I bet if the Sheriff assigned one patrol car to that stretch of single lane highway full time, it would fund itself and probably a few other law enforcement projects on the speeding tickets and drunk driving tickets alone.

I am not without compassion for the people and families who have forever been scarred, damaged and destroyed by this tragedy. But the real answer is to expect people to drive the speed limit and to just slow down. This is Eastern Washington there is nothing happening that is so important you can't relax, let the drive take 5 minutes longer and arrive there safe and sound.
