I just saw this in The Guardian;
My condolences to the victim's families. And hopes for speedy recoveries to the injured.
I'd like to add that the most interesting thing I learned about this was that New Orleans calls the median the "neutral ground"
In the end, the entire matter was avoidable, condemnable, and alas it isn't the last time it will happen until all motorists follow the rules. This whole affair reminds me of being advised in a different thread that my concerns with the repeat speeding of a certain aspiring public official's SUV in Chicago were "over-wrought." Yeah, no. It's true that motorist speeding and other disregard for traffic rules usually doesn't matter. Except when it does. And then it's too late to intervene, and if you're the family of someone affected by it, you've got the rest of your life to think about it. Some people find all this important, others just don't have the bandwidth.
