    This was predicted. Somebody on here said that the MDOT and County Road Commissions would not have the roads safe, and would be making excuses when people started dying as a result. Here we are. They had days of advanced warning, and still failed to do the job that our taxes pay them to do. The state and county governments need to look into privatization of road maintenance. We don’t want or need excuses. We want safe roads, because that is what we are paying for and that is what these entities agreed to provide for that money. If they can not do so, they should stand down and say “Sorry, we can no longer provide this service for that money”, instead of giving us the same litany of excuses we hear every year. Be responsible. Be a mature adult. If you can’t do your job and keep roads safe, it is your obligation to close them. If people want to drive on them anyway after that, that is on them. But if you keep unsafe roads open, that is on you.

    It is not the slippery road or lack of salt that is the fault of this or any other accidents. It is poor driving by one or both parties. Failure to keep control of the vehicle. People all over the world including people in th U. P. drive on slippery roads all the time.
