    Why don’t these small bridges have approach guardrails?

    this particular bridge and others are in the North part of District 4 of Madison County. There is very little attention in this area from the County commissioner. All the money is funneled in the Harvest and Monrovia area to keep the rich people happy and on the side of the commissioners. Just as there needs to be a High School in this area to keep our kids safer. Sparkman is a drug infested trouble area for our high school there. This area was supposed to receive a high school North of Hwy 53, but there again our County commissioner is a right hand man to Dale Strong, who by the way owns a lot of property and builds houses in the Harvest/Monrovia area, so therefore that is where the schools are located. Makes his property and houses sell for big money. Anyway, I pray the lady and her child is safe.
