Bothell family lawsuit over crash

Don’t blame the state

My heart goes out to the Owen-Mayer family for their loss and devastating injuries, but to blame the state for their own actions is wrong [“Family files claims against state over crash,” NWWednesday, May 15].

There were warnings issued and heavy news coverage of the weather conditions. If the state protected them from all weather conditions, the roads would be closed every time we had high winds, snow or ice.

When we do have bad weather, people are urged to stay off the roads, but they still go to work, shop and ski. Don’t expect others to pay for your bad decisions.
