What is it with the people that speed? I know of 4 people that recently visited St. John's and area, they were in absolute disbelief at how many people break the law there when it comes to speeding and running stop signs. One guy said he counted three cars that went through a red light before he could go on his green. Speeders, please tell us why you are in such a hurry, so much so that you are risking yourself and innocent people, hopefully not killing anyone. Are you going to the hospital with a life threatening sickness? Are you a Doctor that has to go to save someone's life? Is it because you can't stand to have someone in front of you? It is a proven fact that with dangerous driving that you only get to your destination, maybe five minutes before a person driving with prudence. So, speeders please tell us why you speed? Or are you to busy speeding around the area to even take time to read articles that may save your life or a loved one.

It's purely selfish reasons and ignorance(no knowledge or concern) that people do not obey the rules of the road. Their lives are either too busy and unorganized or they are too lazy to leave for work earlier to get there on time without driving like their hair is on fire or making constant aggressive decisions on the road.It's the same thing at the end of the day.High time for photo-radar in this province for infamous chronic areas.LEAVE EARLIER. EXPECT DELAYS. SLOW DOWN! DRIVE DEFENSIBLY, or pay the price for your actions.

Hats off to you for writing this letter however as a resident of Adams Pond subdivision and having my children playing on our streets this has been a major concern of my and other neighbours. From my experience there will be nothing done. Don't waste your time just learn to live with it, we've had to.

This letter was written after the council meeting last Tuesday night. It is now six days later and nothing has changed. Surprise, surprise!

Try torbay road if you want to find speeders. They are everywhere. You could have bets on when the next accident is going to happen on Torbay Road. There would be a winner almost every day. Between speeding and not paying attention, it's time to smarten up.
