    Now, if Summerside was in charge of this bridge the speed limit would be reduced to fourty km or if it was possible the PEI government would put in a round about. accidents happen folks, thats why they are called accidents.

    "Travelling in the direction of New Brunswick" ?? Travelling towards New Brunswick would make more sense wouldn't it ?

    So "driving without due care and attention" means talking on a cell phone or texting, which is it? The fine for talking on a cell phone while driving is $275.00, that fine should be posted on the sign prohitibing and maybe driver's will start taking it seriously enough if it hits them in the wallet! I see it everyday!

    Likely TEXTING on the bridge. Due care and attention on the phone. Not likely an accident but most likely an incident. Hopefully one of the 22 cameras on the bridge saw exactly what happened!
