Environmentalism nearly claims another victim

From the StarPhoenix:

Following their investigation, police determined icy roads contributed to the driver’s loss of control and ensuing collision with the centre barrier on the bridge. The grey Acura then skidded across the bridge’s eastbound lanes and on top of the guardrail before crashing off the bridge and into the river. Investigators determined that a build-up of snow and ice along the guardrail contributed to the vehicle going over the bridge.

Well done, environmentalists. Well done.

    How the hell is environmentalism the problem? The problem is City Council not allocating enough money for road deicing.

    And not enough money for snow removal.

    Money isn’t the issue, Ashu. Deicing techniques don’t work when it’s thirty below. Snow from bridges used to be dumped directly in the river. Environmental regulations prohibit this now, and so snow gets piled up along the sides, making beautiful, Hazzard County-esque ramps.
