Tuesday morning’s accident at Ninth Avenue Northwest and the Trans-Canada Highway indicates the problem at that intersection was not resolved with a turning lane for eastbound traffic.

Man killed in Moose Jaw crash

That was never the problem. The problem has always been traffic crossing the highway.
Tuesday’s accident took the life of one man, but it shattered many more. How many more times can this happen?
It would be costly to fix the situation properly — with traffic lights or an overpass or underpass. But the cost only becomes steeper with each life lost. Another alternative would be to close it off as an intersection.
The man killed Tuesday is much more than a  statistic. We can only hope this will be the last fatality at this intersection before something is done to rectify the real problem.
