While we are on the subject of speeding drivers I would like
to mention what I observed this morning. I live on Roosevelt,
south of town and this morning I was disgusted to observe a newer
model, tan/champagne, Chevy SUV (Tahoe?) driving in front of
my house at what must have been at least 40 miles per hour.
This is a rough patch of road and obviously he was late for
work or some other gambit of life that was important enough to
risk the life of our local children. I don't care what his problem
was I do however have a serious distaste for his arrogance.
This happened at a time when the local kids were walking down
the road heading for their school bus. And these kids don't
walk in "the middle" of the street, but I was still
scared. These are residential streets with a POSTED speed limit
of 20 but the neighborhood and pass through traffic don't seem
to think it important. It also seems that teenage and seasonal
drivers add to the problem. ALL drivers in this town need to
be held accountable for their irresponsible driving. I pray
that it won't take an accident involving one of our children
to slow people down.
About: "I am a parent
that is concerned about the rising amount of irresponsible and
teen drivers that are on our streets."
