To the Editor:
Our little town of Dayville loves our visitors, be them from near or far. We only ask one thing of our visitors, and that is to respect us and ours by driving the speed limit.
I witnessed what could have been a tragedy today, had Dad not been quick enough. A little one had wondered out into the highway with a car quickly (over the speed limit) approaching. Just thinking back on it makes the heartbeat speed up.
We may be just over a mile from city limit sign to city limit sign, but what is extremely important to us is what is found between those two boundaries. We have children, grandchildren, moms, dads, grandparents, even great grandparents, aunts, uncles and animals of all shapes and sizes. We have walkers, strollers (both kinds), drivers, runners, joggers and riders, which are of different sizes, age and speeds.
Those of us who live and work on Highway 26 are amazed and shocked at the speed that some people choose to travel. It’s not just cars. It is also pickups with trailers of all kinds. All sizes of trucks hauling all sorts of supplies and goods.
Please slow down, enjoy the sights. You can even stop and give us a visit so we can show you why we “love our little town!”
