This is an appalling post from the Associate Transport Minister. It’s a time for compassion, not politics. And it’s not even a particularly dangerous piece of road. https://t.co/ToETYFKaIB

While motivated by good intentions, I agree the tweet by the Associate Transport Minister was insensitive. Assuming the crash was a result of an unsafe road is very unwise. In fact locals have said the road has been realigned and is a gentle sweeping bend.
It would have been better to just express condolences rather than repeat a stupid slogan and jump to assumptions about the cause of the crash.
