Guest editorial: Move over for troopers; lives are on the line
Eight State Patrol troopers were hit while they were working the roads during a three-day period last week.
That's not just a statistic; eight lives were on the line.
So far this winter, a total of 31 troopers have been struck by other vehicles - a big upswing to the 13 who were struck at this time last winter.
Again, the numbers don't deliver the full impact of what is at stake.
