Recreation of an accident scene

This is a very thoughtful video. I thought it worth sharing. As our seasonal visitors return to Muskoka, and tourists begin to return in the shoulder season, traffic will increase. I am increasingly passed on double lines by those in a rush. Those visiting their cottage need to remember that there is always time in Central Ontario, animals frequent the highway, and that we need to slow down.

Drinking and driving, too, is a choice. But we can all be responsible and make others accountable.

Everyone heals in their own way. Some of us want more information than others. I wrote about all the drownings, accidents and the lack of safe drinking, boating and driving habits in Muskoka. We are all responsible. We have to convince young and old to respect marine and land laws: snowmobile and traffic laws regarding safety and speed on water and highways. Wear your lifejackets, be safe, play safe, use good judgement. Click on the icon at left to see the other videos, and read more about the impact on a family.

On July 3rd, 2008 in Muskoka, Ontario three young men (Cory Mintz, 20, Tyler Mulcahy, 20 and Kourosh Totonchian, 19) died in a car accident that involved alcohol. This video shows the recreation of the accident scene. It is a powerful message.
