The main driver was responsible

The one female driver was going way over the speed limit and hit the other one head on. I have to say I have seen the most stupid drivers this year. Whats the deal that a person finds it necessary to pass on double lines, around corners and with on coming cars. I am sick of having my life and others put in danger because of idiots. I hope her license gets revoked for years. No reason for her to be driving that fast. Now that the reds are coming in, I hope the Peninsula residents drive with care because the out of towner will speed as fast as they can down here to hurry and catch fish.

The Lives of Our Fellow Alaskans

The most immediate & effective method of changing the bad attitude & bad behavior of Drivers here on the Peninsula is the sight of a ALASKA STATE TROOPER.

6 "Rookie" Ak State Troopers have been hired within the last 6 months. Those Troopers need to be assigned to HighWay Patrol. Use Aircraft, Helocopter, Drones,Radar what ever means necessary to make Our Roads & Highways SAFE.

It's "Dip-Net Season" once again & until July 31st.

What could possibly be more Important than SAVING LIVES of OUR FELLOW ALASKANS ?
Assign more State Troopers to Highway Patrol.

SPW "Airborne"
