Cable barrier on freeways saves lives

To the editor:

To all of you who think the cable barrier on the freeways is a waste of money, you obviously have never had a dear friend or relative go through the median and be hit by an oncoming car in the opposite lane.

This happened to the smartest person I know and fortunately or unfortunately, whichever way you see it, the paramedics were able to save his life but that life is not the same after the brain damage he suffered.

If the cable barrier had been installed in that stretch of freeway, he would possibly be the same person he was before; not someone who can’t even hold a job now.
