Abide by the speed limits and live awhile longer

A number of letters written by someone “from someplace else” about our low speed limit is aggravating. We must never forget that “speed kills.”

If you have lived a lifetime on this island like I have, you would realize that some of our drivers are far from being the best in the world. And, like it is where you came from, we have some irresponsible teenagers who show off and go over the speed limit unnecessarily.

I don’t always agree with the people entrusted with setting our speed limits but they have a thankless job so I leave it to their making.

So, abide by the rules that are placed upon us and live awhile longer.
