Letter: FM2 wouldn't exist without those big trucks

Mobile Comments re George Kolbenschlag: NO THROUGH TRUCK TRAFFIC signs

Chris Reeder writes:
I hardly think writing a ticket to a person trying to make a living whether bringing good to or through good old Columbia is hardly the answer. In these days they are following a GPS system that barely even recognizes our little town (and I'm quiet ok with that). Even with the signs, it won't change the fact that some trucks are coming through, and without them Columbia/Adair County would be in a bad shape. In some form or fashion the FM2 wouldn't exist without those big trucks. - Chris Reeder
Chris Reeders - What you say about trucks and truckers is a given. Every town in America would be worse where there no trucks. But you miss the point. There is no suggestion of stopping delivery trucks of any size. The idea is keep through trucks out of the downtown. And, in a large way, it's just a matter of everyone observing the Golden Rule, isn't it? We can make Adair County an even more trucker friendly community and a better place for Downtown, too; and that will entail some mutual understandings. - EW
