Three weeks ago I was involved in a head-on collision with a detached trailer on the two-way span of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. Fortunately, I did not go over the guardrail, as Morgan Lake did [“Long before crash, drive on Bay Bridge could scare,” front page, July 23]. My heart goes out to her. The anxiety goes on and on.
The Maryland Transportation Authority’s November reportlooked at possible measures to improve safety on the bridge, preferring a painted buffer with rumble strips between the two-way lanes. I strongly advocate lowering the speed limit and requiring trucks and trailers to undergo inspection before entering the bridge.
