To the Editor:
Queen Street + Speed Bumps = huge waste of taxpayer money.
The town should take the same approach to Queen Street that they have taken for the road that we live on, which hasn’t cost the town a penny. The speed limit on our road is 15 mph and no one breaks it. Here’s the trick — our road hasn’t been resurfaced in 30 years. Its full of cracks and potholes, the curbs are falling apart. It is impossible to go over 15 mph without ruining your car’s suspension.
So you see, all the town needs to do is let Queen Street fall into complete disrepair, like it has so many other roads, and then the 15 or so families that live on Queen Street won’t have to worry about anyone speeding on their road any longer.
