Speed as a Ticket to the Other Side of the World…
A lot of people were shocked with a triple accident occurred the other day. Ruslan Kutelia’s two sons died in a vehicle crash, the youngest became 18 that day. It is even just horrible to hear it, one can imagine parents’ infinite grief.
The public repeatedly sounded the alarm, warning that the overall driver death rate is coming to the rate of killed during the war, but even these extreme figures have not changed anything.
Outrage on the roads grows, just the representatives of “short fence” are fined, but “favorites” drive like crazy Schumachers. It can be observed also at the daytime, but crazy night races start with darkness, increasing impunity as GAI posts remain only on the roads and their locations are usually known.
They run around even in the town line, I see it often walking along Codor Highway between 9 and
A vehicle crash occurred in Gagra region is a model when three young people being slightly drunk drove in the direction of Gagra. Their destiny in the role of GAI stopped them twice, but every time one of them phoned to someone and very soon traffic policemen got back rings to release gallant horsemen and the end was natural: in ten minutes all three, not reaching the town using inadmissible speed flew out into the other world. I wonder if the person who helped them to escape from traffic policemen wakes sometimes up in cold sweat remembering that he sent them to death with his own hands.
In several days will be the second year of commemoration of Dima Chukbar’s death, the member of t Sukhum City Assembly, who died on a night road not far from Psou. This young man unlike others working in the City Assembly was the hope of those who knew him. He was educated, energetic, and was not afraid to express his opinion; he seemed to become future a politician and a civilized state builder. But Dima liked high speed driving and he died at the very beginning of his maturity rise.
One may recite such tragic stories long - they are too many to be forgotten. What must happen in order the society’s conscience will change and rapid driving will not be considered as a sign of valor?
Parents, whom this misery has not touched yet, don’t you hear the cry over the graves of another’s children? Do you give the keys of vehicles to underage yet? Do you use a telephone right to free your children from responsibility, which protects them from death?
And you, young candidates to self-killers, whom do you show off at the wheel? Is it the old woman with a scythe?
