Motorists deserve better protection on interstates

First, I want to offer my condolences to the families who lost a loved one in the I-94 accident near Michigan City.

The authorities who are to watch over the interstate roadways let the traveling public down not just once, but twice in a week.

The National Weather Service predicted hazardous weather conditions on Jan. 21 and Jan. 23. In California, when they have a heavy rainstorm, the California Highway Patrol puts patrol cars out in front of the traffic and slows it down. Interstate 80/94 should have been shut down or, as in California, slowed down before this accident happened and before the Borman became a parking lot.

To the agencies that oversee these roads, get ahead of the game not behind it!
