Slow drivers and not stopping are dangerous

To the Editor:

I’ve noticed that the police log in our local paper never seems to have anyone listed for failure to stop at a traffic control device. I see a lot of people drive through the stop signs and light frequently — I mean almost like a plague! There’s never anyone for driving too slow, and that seems like a normal everyday occurrence. Instead, the fines and tickets seem reserved for mainly speeders. Slow drivers and not stopping are still dangerous!

‘I felt humiliated’

To the Editor:

Regarding an incident at the pool, I gave (an employee) my money, and she counted my money and said, “You’re short 5 cents.”

Then (another) came up and counted my money again and said, “You need 5 cents.” Then he told me, “Go scavenge the parking lot for a nickel.”

I went and looked for a nickel, but I didn’t find one. So my friend called her dad, and he came in and gave me 5 cents. Then I gave it to (the employee) and she said thank you.

I felt humiliated when I had to go look for a nickel in a parking lot and ask my friend to call her dad to give me money.

I didn’t do anything to deserve to be treated like that. (The employee) knows me.
