Sad, didn't have to happen. the towns just sit on their asses instead of plowing snow. They want to wait until the storm ends so they only have to plow once.

Both Tom and his father were great guys with big hearts. People treat the morley potsdam road as a highway. I grew up on this road.. when I was 10, I used to be able to ride my bike up and down this road.. now, I wouldn't even walk it. A lot of people travel this road, as a "short cut" to Potsdam.. when in reality it is, but it's not a speedway!! As far as downgrading the town.. grow up! They obviously do it for a reason, as my brother works for the town!*Thanks for letting me vent!:)

People go way too fast on that road...agreed. The weather conditions in the north country can be too treacherous for that kind of speed. I hope people will learn caution from these kinds of events.

Not getting their asses out there and cleaning the roads is negligent. My wife is a primary care provider, and she drive to work at 5 AM in all kinds of crappy weather because the "towns" have not plowed their roads. County roads are done, never the town roads. And it doesn't make any difference what township it is. Canton does their own roads, but most towns contract with the County to plow the County roads for the year. And they get paid GOOD, like over $ 6 grand PER MILE. Yet you can drive down a County road and where the County plows it is clear and bare, get to a town plowed County road and it will not be anywhere near as good.

Maybe you should grow up. People die on the roads around here because public works doesn't do their frickin jobs.

That's like suing McDonald's because you're a fat ass, they tell people not to travel the roads when the roads are bad maybe people should listen! I understand people have to work and so do I! I still haven't been in an accident yet and I take the Morley Potsdam rd every single day. Accidents happen whether its snowing, raining or sunny out! Maybe you should grow up.
