Dear Editor,

Sometimes policy problems can be resolved at a low cost, sometimes installing a stop light could go far in making our lives safer. I’ve seen countless accidents at the intersection between Thacker Heights Drive and Highway 6, near Waller Funeral Home. The intersection is the only access to the city of four major neighborhoods, so heavy traffic enters the ramp into an equally heavily trafficked highway. People are distracted and don’t expect other motorists to stop at the yield sign, and thus rear-end.

So, you know what really grinds my gears? People who do not know how to drive.

People using crosswalks.
