Ontario Injury Lawyer :Do you think speed limits should change on Highway 416? Highway 417? Highway 401 ?

Ontario Injury Lawyer, Ontario Accident Lawyers David Hollingsworth www.ottawainjury.ca There has been talk of possibly raising the speed limit an all of Ontario’s 400-series highways. The push is to raise the maximum speed on highways such as Highway 416 , Highway 417 and Highway 401.  The proposed speed limit would be increased to 120 or 130 kilometres an hour.  The argument proposed is that 100 km/h is one of the lowest speed limits around the world for highways. Ontario’s Transportation Minister Bob Chiarelli indicated that  speed is a factor in 20 %  of all fatal Ontario car accidents and that consequently Ontario would not be increasing the speed limit on Ontario’s highways. Chiarelli also noted that Ontario has some of the safest highways in North America and that the Ontario government intended to maintain that record by keeping current speed limits.

I support any actions that reduce car accidents and personal injury. If maintaining a lower speed limit will result in fewer Ontario accidents, then why would we not keep speed limits lower ? Some Ontario drivers would argue that drivers are already abusing the speed limit and driving 120km/hr anyways, so why keep Ontario police busy issuing speeding tickets? If Ontario police weren’t issuing tickets to drivers breaking the 100 km/hr speed limit, they could focus on other distracted and dangerous drivers. What do you think?

Update Douglas Car Accident , Russell Raglin death, serious personal injuries, Ontario lawyer David Hollingsworth

Ontario Personal Injury Lawyer , Car Accident Lawyers in Ottawa, Ontario, Ottawa Law Firms, David Hollingsworth. Im sorry to update this news with news of a tragic death…My thoughts are with the friends and family of Russell Raglan…….

A black Camaro went terribly out of control and flipped several times before landing upside down about 3:25 a.m. Saturday. Two of the four occupants were transported to hospital, one by air ambulance in serious condition, following the crash on the outskirts of the village of Douglas. Sunday afternoon, the driver, Russell Stuart Raglin, 20, of McNab-Braeside Township succumbed to his injuries at the Civic campus of the Ottawa Hospital. Raglin was a listed organ donor whose organs went to save several individuals, says the OPP. One of the four occupants riding in the car, one female, 19, of Renfrew, sustained a broken arm. Police say the other two occupants, a male youth from the Arnprior area and a female youth from Renfrew, sustained minor injuries.

All four were wearing their seatbelts, says investigating officer Const. John Windle of the Renfrew OPP detachment.

Tire marks appeared on the right shoulder of a mild turn, before the car crossed the road and ran along the shoulder, then the ditch, for another 150 metres. The car flipped several times before ending up on the other side of wired fence. Speed is believed to be a factor in the crash that brought OPP technical traffic collision officers to the scene by about 6 a.m. Members of the Douglas and Renfrew fire department also appeared on the scene. Traffic was diverted for several hours from the accident scene, at the intersection of Highway 60 and Rice Line.

Visitation for Raglin will be at the Boyce Funeral Home Chapel, at the reception centre on 138 Daniel Street N., Arnprior from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday. A private family service will be held at the chapel Wednesday morning.

In-memoriams to the Kidney Foundation of the Children Hospital of Eastern Ontario will be appreciated. Condolences or donations can be sent to www.boycefuneralhome.ca.

There was an early morning car crash on the outskirts of Douglas, Ontario this morning. A black Camaro went terribly out of control and flipped several times before remaining upside down about 3:25 a.m.. Two of the four occupants were transported to an Ontario hospital, one by air ambulance in serious condition, following the accident crash on the outskirts of the village of Douglas. One of the four youth riding in the car was thought to have broken her arm. Tire marks appeared on the right shoulder of a mild turn, before the car crossed the road and ran along the shoulder or the ditch for another 150 metres. The car flipped several times before ending up on the other side of wired fence with turf stuck to one of the wheels. Speed is believed to be a factor in the crash that brought Ontario Provincial Police technical collision officers to the scene by about 6 a.m. Members of the Douglas and Renfrew fire department also appeared on the scene. Traffic was diverted for several hours from the accident scene, at the intersection of Highway 60 and Rice Line. The seriously-injured occupant is a Renfrew County resident, but the names and homes of the car’s occupants are not yet available from the Renfrew detachment.

I hope these young accident victims are ok and all have a full and speedy recovery. Thinking of them and their families….                                                                                    David Hollingsworth, Ontario Car Accident Lawyer
