Letter: Sixth St. is not a highway, please slow down

To the editor,

I bought a home on Sixth St. I assumed it was a residential street. The tax codes says it is a residential street. But the city and county workers use it as a highway.

The police department put a police car on the street to warn people to no avail. That didn't help so they put an electronic speed indicator trailer to no avail.

Small children play on Sixth St. so it's not if one gets killed, it's when one gets killed. What will they do then?

I hope city and county workers don't get a free pass with the police department? If people pay a few speeding tickets they will slow down. But then the police department will be in trouble with the city and county workers. The way the system works, one department takes care of the other.

Unfortunately, this problem is seen all over town. I live on Fulton and have seen people driving at least 50mph down our street on a regular basis. And stop signs seem to be a joke to some of them. They barely slow down for them. I don't know what the answer is to this problem but something definitely needs to be done.

I've noticed folks coming from the Forest service road at the top seem to drive way to fast.
And what's with the street sweeper guy laying a trail of gravel every where? The road is worse after he sweeps!

Instead of putting in speed bumps, and in order to address the snow plow issue, install speed dips.

Speed dips are more effective, as they will damage one's suspension/undercarriage (poetic justice) and minimize the snow plowing concerns.

I am not a fan of speed bumps, but I agree with the writer, something needs to be done to try to slow down traffic. I'm far from completely innocent myself, the slope down the road (and many other roads coming down the hill) makes it where just simply coasting down the road can get you over 40mph easily. You have to ride your brakes the whole way down to keep from speeding. Putting in a couple speed humps would keep cars from getting too much momentum down the road. Unfortunately, our City can't even plow a normal road without ripping it up, I would hate to see what a speed hump would look like after the first snowstorm.
