Letter: Guardrails should have been installed long ago

Guardrails should have been installed long ago

No parent should have to bear the heartache of burying his own child.

From day one, when the Scajaquada was built, there should have been guardrails installed to separate park visitors from cars traveling on a 50-mph roadway. The fallen light poles should have been proof enough that guardrails were needed.

Whatever studies were done before amounted to no action by the Department of Transportation. Instead of studies, common sense should have been on the “front burner.”

At 30 mph, the Scajaquada Expressway is useless. It might as well be closed entirely and renamed Serenity Lane for use by pedestrians only.
