engineguy: Sootoday can't report on something they don't have yet. They have to wait for a notice from the O.P.P.

I realize that the police who close the highways have no choice. It's today's protocol. The fact still remains that indefinite highway closures in this part of the world, on a major transnational artery, where often there are no readily available alternative routes, have reached ridiculous proportions. There was a time, not that long ago, when an accident happened, they analyzed it briefly, cleaned it up, and reopened the route. Now it's all about "lawyerism" and "getting it right?" Nonsense! Pure nonsense! In the south, where there is no end of highways, it may work, but up here, NOT SO MUCH!
