Letter to the Editor: Traffic calming request denied, while others were approved
Last updated 3/10/2021 at 6:24pm
I went through the required traffic calming steps for the 600-1000 blocks of Washington Avenue a few years ago. The results? This section of city street did not qualify for a speed hump because a majority of the recorded traffic didn't exceed the established criteria. OK. Since the criteria is applied and accepted evenly throughout the city, we have to accept it. But wait! After reading a recent article in the Beacon (bit.ly/3kRgMAh) maybe the criteria isn't applied evenly after all! It's just my opinion, but it sure sounds like favoritism, the squeaky wheel and let's just write the check so we can get onto real business.
