Camera on Eastern Boulevard would rake in the bucks

To the editor:

Did you read the article in The Herald-Mail about these new cameras to catch speeders in school zones?

Do you think they have an extra one they could install on the curve of Eastern Boulevard right before you get to the YMCA?

Hagerstown could fill the city’s coffers up fast — the camera would be clicking away.

It would help the taxpayers in Potomac Manor to be able to get out of Chartridge Drive and either in traffic on Eastern Boulevard or across the road to the Y.

You take your life in your own hands when you pull out and go left toward Long Meadow Shopping Center, because the traffic coming around the curve behind you is going 45-50 mph not the 30 they should be driving and they’re up on your bumper pushing you to go faster.

So I thought it would be a good idea to put a camera on that curve.

Thanks for reading.
