Rumble strips

I think we all have had  moments  in our driving time where we found ourselves having to react at the last moment, either for a red light, compulsory stop or give way sign.

We have also experienced the way the rumble strips on the side of highways grab attention when we veer slightly to the left.

What a relatively small job it would be to place some of these strips across the road at the approach to compulsory stop or give way signs as an alert to drivers. The cost of installing those lines would be very small compared to the emotional cost to families and the financial cost to the health system for the care, sometimes long-term, of accident victims.
