The speed of morons on this road needs to be closely monitored and enforced. Under no circumstances am I saying speed was at fault here because I DO NOT KNOW. What I am saying is that this is a high speed area with some real morons and idiots that need s good hefty charge from the courts. Thoughts are with the victim, the family and friends and the driver.
