Driver, not police, at fault in crash

To the editor:
This is in response to Mr. Breeden’s letter in the Nov. 15 Herald-Mail.

The individual who ran from the police is the person at fault, period. He is the person who ran from the police after they attempted to do their job and make a traffic stop. He is also the person whose vehicle struck another one, causing injuries to the family inside.

It is ridiculous to blame the police for doing their jobs and trying to stop someone from running. This individual put many lives at risk.

Highway administration has done well with projects

To the editor:
I commend our highway administration. I am glad I live in a community where things get done in a very professional way when they are needed.

The projects I’m speaking about are the following intersections that needed to be upgraded to handle the increased traffic in the particular areas. You will recall the huge project at the Maugans Avenue and Pennsylvania Avenue intersection. Next was the Dual Highway and Robinwood Drive improvement. Here again was a very large and extensive project needed because of heavy traffic created by the new hospital.

I’m just amazed and so glad we have the planners and those people who are able to make it become a reality.

Another project was to improve the intersection of Halfway Boulevard and Massey Boulevard near the Valley Mall. This also was a job well done. You might have noticed, as I did, that all this work was accomplished without closing the intersection, but just manipulating the traffic when and where necessary.

Another one needs to be mentioned and that is the Paramount intersection. Again it was accomplished in the same very professional way and I admire the highway administration for stepping up to the challenges and then getting the job done. This might be a combined effort financially by state, county and possibly the city, to fund the projects, but again I commend those people involved in them.

Keep up the good work.
