This past weekend I was driving to Nashville and saw a horrible crash that had two cars and an 18 wheel tied up in the cable barriers. The system stops an 18 wheel truck from coming across the median and causing more problems, and probably saved the lives of the people in the oncoming traffic.
I was sad for it appeared as if someone had lost their lives in this horrible accident. I am only assuming this, from the somber faces of the rescue people, and the 20 plus miles of stopped traffic on the other side of the road. Then it hit me, that RDF made the post that were installed, and that we probably saved lives for the 18 wheeler did not cross the road, and hit head-on with oncoming traffic.
