Letter: Reasons not to speed
Let’s give Terry Wilson and our law enforcement officers a big hand for stepping up our speed enforcement.
But don’t stop there, we can help:
Commit to driving the posted speed of 25 for only 1 1/2 miles of our historic core. (Who couldn’t do this?)
When we rein in our speeds:
1) No expensive speeding ticket.
2) Homeowners’ driveways access these routes; it’s safer for all.
3) It celebrates many awards and preserves our core as a walkable city.
4) Multiple businesses with job- and tax-generating revenue front these roadways, it supports them.
5) Newly minted high school drivers are on these roadways accessing the high school as are elementary children/parents/teachers.
6) Enormous health-care facilities are just yards off of Grand treating patients who are not well, grant them extra consideration.
7) It reduces noise pollution and a fear factor.
If we all do our part there will be, by default, less work for our officers.
Thank you, Chief Wilson; we support your efforts.
