Police investigate 6 fatal incidents in past 24 hours

BALTIMORE — There have been six fatal incidents on state-maintained roadways in Maryland in the past 24 hours.

"Last night was a very, very bad night on the roadways. We've had some very serious crashes resulting in fatalities," State Highway Administration spokesman Charlie Gishlar said.

The SHA said the six incidents were reported in Cecil, Carroll and Prince George's counties. The six crash victims included a pedestrian, a bicyclist and a tow truck driver.

"All of these crashes were preventable. We don't know what happened yet. Police agencies are going to be evaluating each one of these crashes," Gishlar said.

"We do know that one of those crashes involved the use of a cellphone, so this weekend, keep a lookout for drivers around you because, with the increase of traffic this weekend, the risks are higher," Maryland State Police spokeswoman Elena Russo said.

Imagine the military-style "campaigns" against the citizenry being plotted as we speak.
If we only had stricter laws and more laws and stricter enforcement (how can we use technology to keep the people in check? what tools can we sue to make them even more "compliant"? what is the revenue target for this operation?).
We drive 2-3 ton vehicles past each other at speeds of up to 65-70MPH and the only separation is an imaginary line?
Which of these Einstein's thinks they can EVER reach "zero deaths"? Its not a goal, it's a dream.
It's not really about "zero deaths"??
No kidding.
Keep cheering.
