Spike the wrong-way drivers and save lives

After reading the second article in a week about a wrong-way driver on Highway 14, I am compelled to share a thought.

These accidents and deaths could have been avoided with the addition of wrong-way spikes at the entrance to the off-ramp.

These spikes, like ones you see at a parking lot, would be installed only where it has been proven unclear or unsafe and only if there is room for emergency vehicles to maneuver around them.

If there was some deterrent like these spikes, the wrong-way driver would have been stopped with flat tires and lives would be saved.
