None so blind: Perth Roads

IN answer to Barry Healy’s letter, Just a Freeway, and Mario Nardi’s letter, Claims a Fallacy, Gazette, February 2, my mother had an answer for them: “There are none so blind as those who cannot see.”

By this she meant that truly blind people try their best to understand the things around them as best they can by using their other senses.

They try to solve problems in spite of their disabilities, but many sighted people are blind in their minds to what is right and wrong, and this cannot be fixed.

Common sense seems not to be so common these days.

Blind Freddy would be able to see that there is something wrong with our roads.

Haven’t you noticed, Barry and Mario?

Since they do not agree with building more roads, perhaps truck manufacturers should start putting wings on them.

By the way, Mario, the Narrows duplication did not fail.

Increasing traffic filled both bridges up.

Perhaps we should all go back to walking.
