    I agree with the previous post (I believe that was my mother). It’s time to take a pro-active approach to this problem, rather than being reactive and allowing tragedy to strike several more families before action is taken. Why do so many people have to die in order for the proper thing to be done? Local politicians- it’s time to step in and represent your voters, as you promised you would!
