Safer Driving
By Richard J. Galvin


January 31, 2008

I agree, and Mr. Gatti's street is not the only one that is having this problem. Millar Street up off Dunton Street is the same way and it's funny that we have a local police officer's family that lives up there. But on the other hand, if our local public servants were to sit at KPU or at the port and harbors' office and radar the traffic that travels at high rates of speed through there instead of being at local social establishments, we may see a increase of safer driving.

We need to monitor the way our town's people are driving through our city streets, mainly the younger generations, just because it's snowing doesn't mean we all should get on a snow mobile or a four wheeler. There are people walking, walking their dogs, children out on the streets, going to work. etc. Come on people if you want to play when it snows and horse around on the toys that you worked hard to get then take it to an area that is more suitable than the city streets of Ketchikan.
