‘Hitting the nail’

Dear Editor,

My hat is off to the readers that addressed the proposed round-a-bout in the Wednesday, February 20 edition of the Readers Speak. Talk about hitting the nail on the head. I especially admire Christian Zavinski for having the backbone to swing the hammer.

My opinion has long been to install left-turn green arrow signals in all directions (the left turn lanes are already designated). This certainly will move traffic along more smoothly and safely.

Furthermore, from what I have read and heard on the City Council’s reasons in favor of the round-a-bout and the City Council ignoring people and businesses that have hands-on experience, they are not listening. I would like to paraphrase a quote by Thomas Paine:

“To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason or common sense is like administering medicine to the dead.”

Don’t forget to vote.
