Who's to blame for DISINFORMATION?
Wind gusts at the Wreckhouse reached 111 kph Wednesday around 6:30 pm and this rig was the latest casualty . The driver of the Rig was taken to the hospital. I have written quite a few posts over the years on my Blog about the accidents and the need for better signage. Part of the problem involves the weather announcers on Radio and Television who keep refering to the Wreckhouse as being in the Bay of St. Georges area when in fact it's well over a hundred kilometers from St. Georges. I wonder how many accidents are caused by such weather announcements when unsuspecting tourists hauling campers/trailers and truckers new to the island hit the winds just 15 minutes off the Gulf Ferry and expecting the Wreckhouse to be a hundred kilometers or more away? Maybe someone involved in an accident should take it on themselves to sue the Government of NL for damages sustained in an accident such as the one in the photo. We need better signage and a bit of Geography taught to the weather people who put the disinformation out over the airwaves.
Few shots of the recent one.
