Royal rumble 

To the editor,

Recently, I was the first person on the scene of an accident on the 102 outside of Truro just south of Hilden. A car was trying to get off the shoulder of the road but over-corrected and ended up hitting a minivan on the opposite side of the road. The roads were dry and clear.

I pulled over and grabbed my first aid kit and ran over, calling 911 as I went. I reported what I could until I saw a four-year-old girl in the back seat of the car, unconscious. All I could think of was my own daughter.

When my wife and I drove through New Brunswick we noticed rumble strips on the sides of the highways there. Had they been present here, it's possible a little girl could be celebrating the holidays more happily. I have started an online petition to urge our premier to put rumble strips on Nova Scotian highways
