What would you suggest the victims do?What happened to personal accountability? Stop blaming the DOT and put the blame where it belongs. After living here for 15 years, I see people driving like maniacs on the causeway just to get where they are going two minutes sooner. If the police will start giving more tickets to locals for driving in an unsafe manner we wouldn't need a concrete barrier. If the people that drive the causeway would OBEY THE LAWS - both speed and drinking - we wouldn't need a barrier and we wouldn't have to look at "dead bodies or barriers" instead of the marsh. Grow up people - blame yourself not our government for your lousy actions.
People who obey the law...they get killed too.
The barriers are needed because this is not a perfect world.
