Letter to the editor: Road accidents in forgotten corner of B.C.?

After being touched by several bad road accidents recently, I want to know why speeding is common place, often more than 140km/hr, and usually goes without punishment.

Where are the radars, speed cameras and breathalyzers on Highway 3 in southeastern B.C. (and in southwest Alberta), especially on busy Friday and Sunday evenings? The local police in my experience are nothing but professional.

If they need more resources to do this crucial police work, why are they denied?
