    This is a frequent accident spot….and cameras need to be installed at this intersection.

      Your comment (statement) makes no sense with due respect.

      Cameras play no part in accidents.

      And your reply is what.

      • oh4real says:

        Tell that to a hit-and-run victim

        • Terry says:

          My comments were addressed to the BERNEWS Headline.
          No where does it say it was a hit and run.

          Nothing to see here.

        If you mean that a camera cannot be an active participant in an accident, then I agree. However, cameras can provide invaluable information in the event of an accident, recording what driver’s maneuvers caused the accident, which driver was at fault or if road or weather conditions, for example, were a cause.

        • Terry says:

          Not disputing that and your comments at all and those of others.

          Next you all will be and moaning about too much CCTV et al and being watched.

          Get a life and stop at signs and play by the rules of the road.

          I give up.

      • Hmmmmm says:

        Accidents happen because one or more parties did not fully adhere to the rules of the road.
        Cameras can help police and the government/road safety council to analyze how these accidents happen and take steps to prevent such accidents from recurring by:
        a) identifying bad drivers and taking them off the road
        b) implementing specific public education and awareness programs with an aim at preventing such accidents at frequent accident spots, and
        c) improving road conditions based on information provided by camera footage.

        • Terry says:

          Yeah right.
          Like getting your employer to pay their portion of your health insurance.

          Welcome to earth dude.

        • Lone Wolf says:

          If they took all the bad drivers off the road there would be no more drivers left.

    I hate stereotyping but we had to get a doctor to refuse to give a medical certificate so that my father could NOT ride his bike when he got to about 75.

    He had a few accidents and then kept forgetting his helmet. He was a serious liability on the road.

    Some 81 year olds can handle it, but……

    Whatever the cause of this terrible accident, I hope that this man survives and can live out his life in comfort. My thoughts are with him and his family at this trying time. God Bless….
