Letter: Gridlock

What do the cities of Rifle and New York have in common? Answer — 25 mph speed limits throughout.

With record numbers of vehicles stalled to enter Aspen, hundreds of new housing units proposed for El Jebel, and day-long traffic jams on I-70, maybe it’s time to heed Glenwood Springs Police Chief Wilson’s plea to “Back off, slow down, be patient” (PI, April 21).

Hmm, 25 mph throughout, including Grand Avenue. Glenwood can do its part for traffic calming, if we can still breathe.
