the Time - or rather it, there probably was a vanvidsbilist and according to police, also a drunk driver - overtaking on Sunday evening the good intentions among the politicians in the north Funen Municipality.
It came to pass, when a 26-year-old man with at least 120-130 km/h. in his black Porsche Cayenne påkørte a Citroën, in which the 37-year-old Mads Jump and his mother and aunt, respectively 63 and 64 years sat. They were all three killed as a result of the accident, and the 26-year-old driver of the black Porsche Cayenne, which, together with its passenger and a companion escaped with unscathed, is now in custody and charged with, among other things, negligent manslaughter, drink driving and to escape from the scene of the accident.
A group of neighbors to the scene of the accident is on Tuesday in time to put white crosses up along the main road which ironically is called the 'Water Highway' of the local, because for a long time has been running too strong on the line. Korsene can also be interpreted as a protest, to lokalpolitikerne not for the longest time has been the upgrading of the security in the T-junction, where Assensvej meetings Odensevej, on the agenda.

twist of Fate, the hard irony is, however, that the point 452 on the agenda when the city council in Funen Municipality meet on Tuesday evening at 18 o'clock, is about to have finalised agreement with the landowner to acquire a total of 1842 square meters of his land in the fields around the T-junction, where Assensvej and Odensevej meet - and where dødsulykken happened only two days ago.

We were almost ready to take the first sod for an expanded intersection with lysregulering, and then it happens here. It is terrible, and I got really hurt in the stomach when I heard about the accident, says Pia Longet, non-attached member of the city council of Funen Municipality and a member of the Technique and Environment committee, which prioritizes the order in which the trafikforbedrende measures must be done in Arlington and the surrounding area.

According to the Left-the mayor Morten Andersen, it becomes a form of byrådsmødet to proceed to the next step in the process, which began about a year ago, when the Technique and Environment committee proposed that just this cross was for the trip to improved road safety.
- I am careful to respond to an accident, we do not know all the details about yet. Therefore, I would not use this case to say 'there, you see. It is also good that we will do something about the safety of the crossing'. The 26-year-old man could perhaps also be run over a red light, even though light regulation had already been established, says Morten Andersen.
the Mayor of Bogense Municipality, Morten Andersen (V), agrees with it in the Council for Safe Traffic, Søren Ørsted Pedersen, in that it can be difficult to prevent vanvidskørsel with even the best security measures and awareness campaigns. Therefore he will also not speculate whether a traffic light could have prevented the accident last Sunday. Photo: Ole Frederiksen
the Mayor lives quite close to the scene of the accident and is in the nature of happy that T-krydsets security improved before long.
According to Pia Longet is the list of points which need to be trafiksanering, an eternal matter of priority.
- I can well understand that those who now say that the junction should be ordered, so it was more secure, long ago. I have even thought of, but it belongs in the context, that we are constantly trying to use our resources in the best and most appropriate way, says Pia Longet.
According to the city agenda, as the Extra Magazine has a copy of, a dispute with the landowner as to whether he should go with to receive a voluntary erstatningssum, or on the transfer of the earth should be made via the rules on expropriation, the reason for a 12 weeks long delay of the project with lysregulering and venstresvingsbane.

I totally agree with Pia Longet in that the issues of road safety must always be the past a discussion about priorities before we can take care of the necessary improvements in the order we find most sensible, " says mayor Morten Andersen explains:
- There are also other places which needs more security and improvements of traffic conditions. In addition, we must also always have in mind that, for example, several chicanes and other speed humps measures may hamper the emergency vehicles, which often works with time as an important factor, when they should arrive.
the First ground-breaking ceremony for the expanded and lysregulerede intersections expected to be taken in the autumn holiday. When it is finished, it has cost approximately 1.6 million dollars to establish, informs the mayor.
