I hit this particular road as hard as I can

what does that mean?

that road is nuts… people speed there all the time. needs a permanent speed camera there rather than on the monaro or parkway!

It is patrolled frequently

I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t be discussed as a “mistake” if a driver in another vehicle had happened to be collected and killed …

pretty sure they basicly do have a permanent speed camera on clift as they set up camp at the bus stop around no40 a majority of the time, be it one of the vans or a marked or unmarked car.

I hit this particular road as hard as I can, it is heart breaking to needlessly see lives lost.

I don’t know what their hurry was,but am glad that nobody got in the way.

People drive like idiots on Clift Crescent. It’s on of those 60km/h streets that feels like a highway – except for the driveways, the gutters (you can’t put a wheel in the dirt like you can in the country) and the trees… Drove past today: there are young people in shiny overpowered cars paying their respects. Hope some of them can remember this moment next time they’re behind the wheel after midnight with mates in the back seat.

The 19 year old was a man, but the 17 year old was just a female?

What is it with Clift Crescent this week?

First we have a major accident on Friday & then a death on the same road, not even 48 hours later.

Condolences to Meagan’s family. A life taken short, you will be sadly missed Meagan, RIP.

Firstly my condolences to the loved ones of both victims.

It seems that these deaths were particularly avoidable in this case however we see an accident of exactly this type every year. (eg 17 yo Amy Ryan last year). Unfortunately it now seems that losing a friend in a car accident is now an expected part of growing up.

so sad, they were so young. RIP
