Speed trap?

Posted: Thursday, August 23, 2007

Soon it will be time for the flashing yellow lights and a 20-mile speed limit in front of Tustumena Elementary School. What are they for? I have been driving by that school as long as it's been there. In fact, I homesteaded the land it's sitting on and then relinquished it.

The only children you are going to see are on those two $300 signs the state put up. I crawl through there time after time and ask myself, "Why am I doing this?" There is a simple solution. Let the lights flash 24 hours a day, but change the signs to read "Slow to 20 when children are present."

That will satisfy everyone, except the troopers, who will have to wait 40 years to find a speeder when a child is present. They can get their quota on the Cohoe Road speed trap placed there by the 1987 borough assembly and not by the DOT.
