Letters: Safety concerns on Sooke Road

Logging truck rollovers happen frequently on Sooke Road

Another logging truck roll over on Sooke Road. The logging companies have again demonstrated that road safety is not of the slightest concern to them.

What is it going to take for our spineless and complicit government to take action and protect the public? Are they waiting for a family or a school bus full of children to be wiped out? Are there even any fines or repercussions levied against the company responsible? Maybe a $100,000 fine would wake them up from their greedy stupor. (I am hoping this could be published as a letter to the editor to vent my frustration as a member of my family was just missed by this truck.)
