A few weeks ago I called VDOT and asked them to cut the grass on the sides of the roads in the Cardinal Area. Saturday night a man was hit by a car up the road from where I called about. VDOT it is accidents like this that could be prevented. You cut the grass and clean the ditches in some areas, but over look others. Dont let another person die before you do your job.

So people walk all the time in the road in Cardinal, is there no responsibility for the man in the road to beware of cars? Is it always the Governments responsibility. What about personal responsibility????? I don't pretend to know what happened, but have sent folks in the road that perhaps should have had excorts or aids assisting them. I just wonder why it is always some else responsibility. Did the person see that the grass was uncut and perhaps should taken precautions to prevent being injured???

You have a point Angel. And no the guy may or may not have seen the side of the road. And Mobjack let one of the county's bikers get hit by a car. Lets see what is put in the paper. Lets see what adjustments the county makes. I dont want to see this happen, but just remember this and compare the situations.
Asfor the government it sucks as mst people know. ake the hunt situation in Mathews. Guys have been hunting for years here. now its a big issue. The government of the county does nothing for the people that have lived here for years. Their focus is mostly on how to please the people coming.
I had the chance to be down at Horn Harbor a few weeks ago and watch some kids taking swimming lessons. Mathews is surrounded on three sides by water and doesnt have a decent beach to take kids to go swiming. All the water front has been sold. And the county doesnt even have a swiming pool. Cost to much? Charge admission. Can you imagine the people that would be there in this weather? But there is not enough intrest from the counties chosen few. Mathews has forgotten its children. What do you offer them. Less and less hunting. Few places open to the public to fish. Who would let their kids swim in the creeks around here? Sad state of affairs. And people ask why kids stay in trouble. Take a good look around Mathews.
