Re: (TNT, 12-8).

I am writing this in hopes of getting the word out to improve Smith Prairie Road and others.

My mother, Linda Burkhardt from Puyallup, died Dec. 7 after another driver who fell asleep at the wheel crossed into her lane on Smith Prairie Road in Yelm.

If there were more road grids (rumble strips) on roads, not just on the outer side of lanes but in the middle as well, my mother would still be alive
