To the Editor:
I am the owner of the Mediterranean Kitchen downtown. I was not able to get to the meeting last week.
I have a front row seat everyday to the bus. I see no problem with the bus stopping where it does now. I do see a problem with the rest of the drivers.
If people were more courteous and patient, the flow of traffic would be smoother.
I see drivers both coming up and downtown, going faster than they should be allowed, in a hurry to go nowhere. Some drivers are selfish and park wherever they want (when signs say they cannot).
Last Friday afternoon, there was a car parked in the no parking – tow away zone in front of my business. This is where the bus stops. Where were the cops?
I’ll tell you, they passed through town twice and neither officer stopped to ticket this person who parked illegally, so what choice did the bus have than to park behind this car and block traffic for a few minutes. So what I say to everyone, please slow down and have a little courtesy to fellow patrons.
There is enough room for the bus and two lanes of traffic to pass at once if everyone just watches out. I have seen this and it works great. They are there for a short time.
