Fear Of Driving

Dear Editor,

We all have that fear when we are driving through the wildlife with people speeding. We all hope that we make it through with no issues. But it amazes me how some people really do believe that they are above everyone else. They think that they can drive as if it is a closed road and they are the only ones on it.

But let me tell you that it is not a closed road and there are many people on it and we are trying to get to work and school and wherever else we need to be that morning. So why is it that when one person is late for work that they decide to do over 80 through the wildlife (I thought the speed limit was 40) and they do get pulled over but amazingly they get away with it.

Why, do you ask?

The reason they got away with it is because the person decided to tin the officer that stopped them and told them how they were late for work. So instead of getting a ticket they were just told to slow down. So apparently this person has no regard for anyone else on the road and instead of calling work to say they will be late they decide that it doesn’t matter if someone on the road was to get hurt. What about the rest of us that may have been late that morning and still respected the road?

But what gets me even more is that this person knows that they did wrong and came into the job bragging about the fact that they were caught doing over 80. And stating to the people at the job that the officer that stopped them has made them even more late to work!

So the way that I see it is that if you’re an officer then you don’t have a speed restriction on that road cause apparently you can get away with it.

To the officer that got away with a warning just remember you could’ve killed someone’s mother, father, child, sister, brother, grandparents and then would you even care? The way I see it you made your point that you didn’t care when you drove over 80 miles an hour and bragged about it. So someone else’s life means nothing to you. You should be ashamed of yourself and the next time you do this which I’m sure you will you won’t have such a big mouth. Remember Rockaway this is your neighbor and if they don’t respect that road then that shows me that they have no respect for the roads that our children play on.
