Why do governments re-inforce, reward bad behavior?
Does anybody have the answer to the inanities of government spending - from top to bottom - which rewards bad driving? A personal comment: I'd like to be able to walk three blocks to the Square without fear of being hit by a speeding car. And I'm still waiting to have one night of sleep without unnecessary and illegal noise awakening me in the night. Why? (I only disagree with any notion of fines being a source of revenue in the commentary which follows. That should never even be allowed. It's corrupting from top to bottom). - EW
Comments re photo 45540 Scenic Adair Co KY The town watchman
By Fay McKinley
Why are we allowing the speeders within the city limits?
Stopping them would be a good source of revenue for our city and also make our city a safer place.
The state wants to buy 1/3 of my front yard and 1/2 of my neighbors. Why. The evaluator said, "We can't stop the speeders so we are making a place for them to go if someone pulls out in front of them. Does that make sense to you?
I am talking about Fairground Street before you turn on the Green Hills Road.
He also told me that a monitor at that site showed that in a 24 hour period only one vehicle was traveling at 35 mph and it was a farm tractor pulling a trailer.
Why can't we stop the speeders instead of spending all this money to widen the road which will only create faster traffic than we have now. --Fay McKinley
