YOUR SAY: Make our roads safer before we see more lives lost

ANOTHER senseless death. Another family in immense pain and grief.

When is Mr Rickuss going to have something done about the speed limit over the Little Liverpool Range between Laidley and Grandchester?

What about guardrails around that horrendous bend where three men lost their lives in three separate accidents in the past six months.

You can blame the drivers all you like Mr Rickuss, but the fact is if they were going 80km/h instead of 100 they may still be here with their families today.

Get off your bum, sir, do your job and together with Main Roads find a solution, quickly.

There is a lot more traffic on these back roads now and the safety and condition of the roads need to reflect this. My heart aches for the families.

JEANETTE McDONALD, Grandchester.
