Day after day, I observe signs that it is easier to put time and money and power into preventing solutions to deadly underride than to seek tirelessly for developing solutions.
I mean, where would we be, in this day and age, if inventive and creative people had not developed the light bulb or airplane or telephone or morse code or television or typewriter or personal computer or cell phone or camera or indoor plumbing or automobile or internet or laptop or smartphone or . . . You get the idea.
So don’t give me any excuses or point the finger of blame at someone else.
We do not lack the skills or the resources to solve the underride problem. No, we lack the will to do so. We treasure the bottomline more than the human lives. At least that is what our actions show.
It is sickening actually. Sometimes the anger and the grief leave me spent.
And then I get up again and head back into the battle. Because that is how we are going to win this war for the best possible protection with Righteousness* & Truth as the weapons of our warfare.
*. . .the quality of being morally right & justifiable.
The same holds true for other truck & traffic safety issues which end in Preventable Death by Vehicle Violence.
“. . . I will eliminate the beasts of the field from the land. . . and you will live securely.” Ezekiel 34:25
