Letter: Forget Big Brother, what about little sister’s life?

12/19/2014 7:00 AM |

After narrowly escaping several would be rear-enders while reducing speed to the posted limit in front of Greenport High School, your editorial last week made me wince.

The accompanying news story, which basically supported the political decision, was also very troubling.

It seems that concerns about traffic fines and Big Brother are more important than the life of little sister. Further, justifying speeding in school zones to almost twice the limit is dangerous advice, especially for any public media to make.

It’s just a matter of time until a kid from around here is hit and probably killed in a school zone, given local driving habits.

What will your editorial say then?
