Opinion: Bare roads are the safest roads

A message to Gov. Peter Shumlin:
On the evening news recently you were talking about the roads, not BARE ground or similar term. My wife was driving home from Burlington and told me of a detour on Route 7 because of an accident. A few minutes later she called about a second accident. My concern was heightened for her safety.
The news later confirmed the two accidents. One was fatal; the rescue people were having a tough time working at the accident because of slippery conditions.
Please reconsider the road conditions and revisit the bare road. The roads are used by people going to work and many other reasons, including public safety people who are out to help. This policy also slows down response time as well as putting them in danger. Please do not put a price on everybody’s safety.
Stephen Hofmann, Addison
