Fancy this road having the temerity to once again play a significant part in this accident! Really? I wholly agree with The Sage and Angel74 though. The ’best’ and ’safest’ built road in the world will never compensate for poor/inattentive driving.

the road

Poor driving. You can’t blame the road all the time. Set up cameras at Bethlehem and enforce speeding and poor driving. That will stop at least 50% of the accidents.
