Tragedy can happen here

My heart goes out to the family of this terrible accident in Surrey which took the lives of three generations

My heart goes out to the family of this terrible accident in Surrey which took the lives of three generations: grandmother, aunt, mother and two small children.

This could have been prevented. Someone did not want to wait for the light. I see this almost every day here in Penticton. It is only 10 minutes from one end of Penticton to the other side, and if you are the first person at the lights it is only a one-minute wait.

I have timed this so many times because I wanted to see how long I had to wait. I have experienced people running amber lights when I am trying to turn at the intersection. Just one minute. Next time you come up to the lights, check the time it takes for the light to change, just one minute. It can save lives.
