I don't get the Adver. Why do they allow people to comment on stories/deaths like this - especially where absolutely no facts have been printed?

I'm not commenting on the story. I'm commenting on why they're allowing comments on the story. Big, big difference.

I use this road a lot and believe it to be dangerous and in need of improvement. I am therefore making a productive and useful comment. You on the other hand are being sanctimonious. It is a tragedy that someone has died but that is what newspapers report on. Why should we be only allowed to comment on planning law and Swindon Town Football Club?

Because people like you will start making pointless remarks and conjecture about a death where you know nothing of the circumstances. I have used the road a lot and don't find it particularly "dangerous" as you put it. By saying it is, you could be intimating that the man who died was himself driving dangerously? Pretty sanctimonious and nasty. If someone you knew had died in a car crash, I'm sure you'd love it if people like you started making sweeping, generalisations about the incident. No? Thought not.

Roads are inanimate objects and not dangerous, it is the people in the vehicles who sadly cause the crashes.

What a tragedy. It's about time that the over 60s should be given annual checks of eyesight, reaction times, driving ability, medical conditions etc.
