Lunacy

ISN’T it time to stop the lunacy of putting people’s lives at risk by those who make a calculated decision to show their contempt for others and cross the Holy Island Causeway after the crossing times.

Over the last weekend, a car went over an hour and a half after the crossing time.

My suggestion is draconian but measured in the circumstances.

I strongly suggest a £1,000 fine, plus payment of the full costs of calling out the emergency services and confiscating and crushing the offending vehicle, which like the one over the weekend is probably a write-off anyway because of the ingression of sea water.

The only other measure, which could be paid for by a charge to cross the causeway, would be railway level crossing type barriers, but why should the majority of sensible people be penalised for the lunacy of a few?
