Letter: Limit thru-traffic

Billy Joe Fudge writes:
There are things which befuddle me, many of which are because of my deficiency of mental acuity. Some however, defy simple logic and this situation is one of them. Why we as a community are not more proactive in our effort to limit unnecessary "thru traffic", particularly semi-truck and long, commercial rigs of more than three axles is beyond me. Accidents are preventable but particular steps often have to be taken to prevent them. In this case, this accident would not have happened had the truck been on the bypass.

Let me be clear in that I know trucks are necessary to make deliveries and for transporting equipment, etc. around town. However, we, our community, individuals and state, spent many laborious hours seeking a bypass and millions of dollars in constructing it. We did that in the name of public safety and to set our downtown business and cultural community free from the traffic gridlock that had squeezed the life out of it for decades.
