THIS is what I am talking about, senseless loss of life.
It is not un believable to me that accidents, high speed and killer accidents, happen..still. I have looked after many a road trauma victim whether they be the driver, the occupant of the speeding car or the unfortunate person who was minding their own business, crossing the road or driving home from work. What pisses me off, is when I see this again and again and again. Nothing will deter these kids from speeding, nothing will deter the drunken, drug fu*ked idiots from causing accidents. When they come to the hospital, they sometimes have to go to ICU. Out front of ICU there are hoards of "friends" there waiting to go in and visit. The vision of their friend in such a critical way is upsetting to these visitors...but it does not always deter them from later on, joking with their injured friend. "Oh man, that was so cool how you spun, and how you almost did a 360..way to go!" Yeah, right... now they are having to supplement the normal dietary intake with baby food consistency through a straw for about 6 weeks secondary to their jaw being wired... good friend you are! Friends like that are no friends at all. Oh, and by the way, that person has to write on a white board to communicate with people too..okay.
I would love to see these hoons who are caught, prior to any accident happening, have their car crushed in front of them. I would gladly push the button. Bloody hell, it is a privilege not a right to drive on the roads!
Just to let you all know, not 24 hours after the accident occurred, more hoons were clocked on the radar doing double the speed limit in that area.... see, they will not learn will they?
The emergency services are getting fed up, how much more plainly can it be put? Why should we tour young drivers through a trauma ward and show them what happens to the human body in an accdent if it is not a deterrant? Why broach the privacy of the trauma victims by showing these kids..supposed young adults, what a trauma victim goes through?
