Safe Driving

To the Editor;


I survived a high-speed rear end collision 50 feet west from Turk’s parking lot on September 23, 7:20 am. Thanks to seat belts and air bags and a strong Nissan Rogue, I and my dog survived!

            The driver of the high speed vehicle was distracted by her own statement.

            Rt. 6 from the North St. traffic lights to the Marion line has had a large number of severe accidents.

            The excuse used by officials is that Rt. 6 is a state highway with very little law enforcement on Rt. 6. My advice to all drivers is to wear seat belts and do not be distracted by using your cell phone. Be alert, be safe!

            Thanks to the Mattapoisett police and paramedics for their professional, kind attention paid to me and my dog. You did your job!
