Near miss on Bendy Bridge not surprising

JOHN Edwards said the recent near miss on the infamous Grafton Bendy Bridge was a perfect example as to why the road toll would never reach zero.

"(There are) too many muppets in a rush - (they're) mostly incompetent too,” he said.

The bridge earned its nickname because of the bends and trucks and other larger vehicles often cross onto the wrong side to make the turns easier to navigate.

This means oncoming vehicles must give way.

David Cox said people "just don't care until something happens”.

"Then they become anti-trucking because it's our fault they are idiots. Can you imagine the income from tickets if police could issue tickets from dash cam footage? Bet all this dumb stuff would drop by 90 per cent.”

Dave Grace wondered what was wrong with society these days.

"If a car pulled up in front of you near a bend, wait, it's pretty obvious that there's a reason.”
