Unfortunately the vast majority of accidents on the Malahat are due to bad driving, excessive speed, lack of skill and an inability to make smart decisions as soon as most of us get behind the wheel of a car. Yes barriers will reduce the number of deaths, but it really only solves the symptoms and not the underlying problem. IMHO the money would be far better spent on proper enforcement.
