Two things; The accident that killed the couple from Westchester happened on the Merritt, not the WC Parkway and I can't believe the carnage on the Merritt the past week due to ineptness of the State when it comes to animal control and highway maintenance. Historical Landmark or not, the state can and should maintain a safe corridor.

My heart goes out to this couple who so tragically lost their lives and left behind two wonderful loved children. God Bless all.

Two young productive lives end. Two young children traumatized and orphaned because we STILL cannot take care of our highways. Wasn't the bridge collapse enough of a lesson?? We still cannot protect people driving through our state because of ineptness and poor maintenance but are considering toll booths again. Use tax dollars you have now instead or stockpiling it and overpaying Dept of Transportation "administrators". Someone was not doing their job and CT will pay dearly in court settlements; and rightously so. MAYBE THIS TIME IT WILL SINK IN ABOUT RESPONSIBILITY TO THE PEOPLE...It is not just a job..it is a responsibility!!!
