    two way. reread what i said between drinks. if the person at fault is drunk or high he should pay all the experiences for ems etc not the tax payers nor his insurance. he can pay the bills out of his booze money

    Really it doesn't look like road conditions would have anything to do with going through the stop sign would it . The roads look pretty slippy on the so called secondary road yet the main road can be seen as well salted an bare . If anyone should be charged it should be the people looking after that secondary road ,then again that's a private route an doesn't need plowing until cars can't get through it . Remember Government cleaned roads 2 cm and secondary roads 6-8 cm which leads to this . Two classes of service for people yet we all pay the same taxes .Proper road maintenance would also help cut insurance rates too

      Although road conditions do look slippery, the driver must adjust his driving to these conditions. He may not have been speeding, but he could have been going to fast for the road conditions. Not the highway guys fault

    i'm sure no one was drinking. but islanders do not get drunk during the day and drive do they? and if so he/she should be forced to pay all bills, ems, fire, police, tow trucks, hospital, car repairs. plus fines in court etc. that should be the law just think how it will save our insurance rates from going up.

      Whats wrong with drinking during the day? The ems, police, hospital etc you list work nights along with hundreds of islanders. My day is your night. I see no different from drinking in the day time as long as you don't drink and drive. Alcohol was not a factor in this incident.
