LETTER TO THE EDITOR — City needs to address speeding, distracted driving
Published 12:01 am Thursday, October 28, 2021
(On Monday) returning from the Doctor at about 2:45 p.m. after entering the circle around Tyrrell school, I met head on with 2 cars going the wrong direction on a one-way street.
I had no way to go, so the 2 breaking the law had to jump the curb to allow me to get to my house.
Then when I arrived to my driveway, I was blocked due to traffic bunching up due to a truck stopped in the middle of the street waiting to pick up their kids.
I waited 5 minutes to turn in my driveway.
Once home, I helped my wife into the house, then sat on the porch to watch the cars going the wrong direction over and over, causing a near head-on (crash).
Then here comes a truck marked 159, PAISD police. What a joke. It circled around the school 2 times while watching 2 cars go the wrong way in front of him and nothing was done.
There is going to be a child hurt or killed with the City and PAISD not doing anything to correct the traffic problem.
Maybe a letter to the paper will turn on an action that stops the danger of speeding, talking on the cell phone and going one way around the school.
