  1. This tragedy should be a wake up call. All to often I see people rushing last minute (literally) before shabbos by car. The pressure to get to the destination before the zman makes for reckless driving. Roads like the 383 are dangerous at the best of times.

    If we learn from this and begin leaving for far destinations with enough time to get there several hours before shabbos without having to resort to.driving excessive speeds then these bochurim will have a kappara and a zchus

    • To aron. I think that your comment is a little inappropriate. It is one thing to be more careful yourself when you drive but to go and blame what happened on reckless driving is insensitive to anyone who feels connected to the deceased. This applies even if what your saying is true because true or not people don’t like being blamed, blame isn’t usually welcome even if it is true. Especially now we must be sensitive to family and friends.
