Letter to the Editor | Area drivers need to be more careful

Slow down. The life you save may be your own and a small child or someone walking a dog.

This morning, as I was pulling out of my drive, a car was entering my street from Duncan Road at a high rate of speed. This person was irritated that I impeded their progress to whatever destination they were late for and stayed inches off my rear bumper until I turned on Branch Road.

I see people all the time cut down my street to avoid the stoplight at Windsor and Duncan and drive too fast in a residential area. This happens in all neighborhoods in town, and it will result in someone killing a dog or a small child. Why are we in such a hurry, not to mention all the people I see texting while driving.

Slow down. You may save your own life or that of a young child or a senior citizen or some pet.
