Cop’s column bang on

I have never enjoyed such a good column more than when I read Delta Police Chief Jim Cessford’s column (“Put the phone away when you’re behind the wheel,” The Leader, Jan. 30.).

It was interesting to read what Cessford says about some of the accidents he has seen. The majority of people can only imagine how serious a crash can be and how it can haunt someone for life.

It sure hits a person’s heart when you see an elderly person crossing the street, a young parent pushing a baby buggy, kids with their parents crossing and families in their vehicles and then to think of the force that a distracted driver hits them at.

Thanks for your column, Jim Cessford. I hope we see results one day.
