Fix Appin Rd from Cambelltown to Bulli before another innocent life is lost

My son Brock lost his life on the 28th of September 2012 due to the disgraceful condition of Appin Road. He was only 8 years old.

I’d just told him we were turning around at the next safe place, because the road was so bad in the rain. The last thing I remember is trying to grab for him as the car hit a sheet of water and AQUAPLANED into oncoming cars.

The police found the car was roadworthy, I had no drugs or alcohol in my system, and eyewitnesses say the accident was completely unavoidable.

This road killed my son. And there have been at least three more accidents since -- one car rolled with a mother and her daughter in it.

Something needs to be done NOW before another INNOCENT person loses their life.

Our family will not let Brock become just a statistic for that road. He would want us to be his voice, and that is what we are going to do.

Stop and think, what if the next person to smash on that road is You or a Loved one of yours.

We’re asking the government to DO SOMETHING NOW, PLEASE.

R.I.P BROCK - You will make a difference.
