Default Speed Enforcement Accident

Here's a story from my home province of an officer nabbing a potential speeder gone terribly wrong. How tragic this is, a completely needless death, all under the guise of making the roads safer from speeders. How ironic that speed enforcement actually had the opposite effect, and increased the danger to a fatal consequence and all in the name of revenue generation masked as public safety. Condolences to his family. Unfortunately his blood is on the hands of a crooked and unjust system and government.

Yes most unfortunate trajedy. The officer is, indeed, in my prayers.

That said:
The story suggests a speeder passed by. OK, even if that were true in reality, any individual whether in uniform or not my be aware of their surroundings especially when involved in re-entering a roadway or may any unexpected turns/u-turns.

It's been my belief that, more than "speed," driver inattentiveness is a far greater contributor to accident causation.

In fact there is some material online that has attempted an honest and thorough examination of this very subject.

May I suggest the following reads, please:Which in turn references:STH
