    a life taken for a careless driver.
    a life we will never get back
    all to careless drivers

    Reports are that the car left the road and hit the pedestrian – who to believe? Certain media would have us think our roadways are inherently dangerous. Admittedly, they aren’t great, but most of us have no problems. A high operator error rate – whether due to intoxication or distraction – seems to be the most common underlyer to our accidents. It’s important that we try to get that part right.
