For anyone interested, John featured on RTE‘s Drivetime show on Friday last, February 2nd. The segment of the show is archived on RTE and available here (just sroll down to ‘Road Deaths concern prompted by local designer’.
The overall segment really hits home in terms of deaths on the roads and it should be listened to by everyone. Delighted my own father didn’t wind up on the list recently, effectively writing off his jeep in a dangerous-weather collision with a tree recently after over 25 years free of accidents. Lucky to walk away without a scratch despite the massive damage to the jeep – other people simply aren’t, whether it comes down to causes of nature, speeding, or being a pedestrian in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Jacqui Corcoran (reporter) actually speaks to some of the families as well who have found some comfort in RoadDeaths.ie itself so if you’ve got five minutes to spare and have Real Player installed, give it a listen.
