its a shame. they didn't say whether or not alcohol was involved, but at night with a radar gun and fast sled...
this story seems crazy to me, 1.) how does the person riding the sled not see the guy taking radar, 2.) how does the guy taking radar not move in time? drunk or sober, doesnt seem to make sense! very sad though[/b]
It's a family site.Oh wow, the forums sensor what I type automatically, look at that, lol.[/b]
Usually is. Irregardless what the reasoning it's a sad situation and my condolenses to all involved.Sounds like there is more to the story than has been reported.[/b]
Why do people always bring up the issue of alcohol whenever there's an accident?[/b]
I think you answered your own question. Two guys on a lake on a Friday night dooing 200kmh+ radar runs.....Hmmmmm think some liquid courage might be involved, I think it would be rather negligent to not assume so. There was a police officer involved, good chance we will NEVER hear the entire story. Regardless it was an asinine stunt to be pulling at night.It certainly does sound a little odd that people would be doing radar runs at night, and then not take any precautions to avoid something like this.[/b]
That's my point though Perm, even if they were drinking, it wouldn't, or certainly shouldn't, be the alcohol to blame. There are a number of things about blaming the alcohol really bother me.I think you answered your own question.

How does it go...Hold my beer watch this
Lol, ya beat me to it Newfiebullet. Perhaps the people who raise the alcohol question are raising it because THEY ARE GUILTY? I'd say so. Darn you accusational ####s with your guilt so large ya pawn it off on everyone else so that you look good. NEVER ASSUME.[/b]
You will not hear about people getting killed in Burketon anymore. This place was shut down at the end of the summer. :bash: This was a nice place to ride dirt bike, quads & 4X4's thanks to idiots again. They have no problem making sure they have lots of booze but they leave there brains at home. The cops had no problem with poeple riding there as long as you were legal & not drinking.How much do you want to bet that the "strip" on Scugog doesn't get plowed next winter?
A few years ago 2 dirt bike riders are killed in a head on collision east of Burketon. After that the place is a magnet for cops every weekend.
Now this happens on Scugog (only a few miles away). Next winter the DRs will be out in force on the lake harassing sledders.[/b]
