Donna Saunders: Same offenders are continually breaking law
Received from an obviously "Sleepless on Burkesville Street" writer at 12:50amCT, Thursday morning, January 24, 2013, from loud, noisy, unsafe Burkesville Street, Columbia, KY
By Donna Saunders
I don't care where you live or have lived, it is not wrong to want to have the laws of your community upheld.
Speed limit laws are there for a reason...public safety.
To just ignore those laws is a complete disrespect for the law and the citizens of that community.
Yes, people make mistakes, but if you sit on my front porch for one day (Burkesville Street) you will see many of the same people continually breaking the speeding laws.
I am not just saying 10 or 15 miles over the speed limit but 20, 30, 40 and sometimes more in a 25 & 35 MPH zone.
Apparently, there is a culture in Columbia that these laws are to be ignored by many people including law enforcement.
Thumbing your nose at laws that were enacted by the citizenry is not something that "outsiders" or "locals" should want in their community.
Why does a tragedy have to happen before anyone takes this seriously? - DONNA SAUNDERS
