SR 16: Off-ramp seems simple enough

Re: “Sprague off-ramp takes hit” (TNT, 7-8).

The Sprague Avenue exit off state Route 16 might be a little different, but it is not unsafe. Its clearly marked with a yellow flashing light and a few signs. Seems pretty simple. If you don’t want to hit the wall, then slow down.

Driving is a privilege. We need to remake personal responsibility the cornerstone of our country again. People complaining or hitting this off ramp are a big part of the problem in America. They are far too selfish to take personal responsibility for their life. Any decent judge would not allow a lawsuit because someone drove off the ramp to go forward.

We need a new law that says if you are not smart enough to avoid hitting this wall, you can no longer drive on public roads. Simple.

It scares me that these people who can’t slow down and drive safely could possibly be teaching the next generation of speed racers.
