Letter: Cops that speed

April 29, 2013 

My annoyance has quickly grown to concern related to the excessive speed at which law enforcement travel my street without using their sirens or light bar, especially at night.

I have lived on Thayer Drive for years and there are many children (I have three of my own) that live in this area. I feel it is unfair and unsafe to not offer some indication to other drivers and pedestrians when speeds are way above the posted speed limit.

I have never seen any other emergency vehicles (ambulances, fire trucks, etc) fail to make their presence known like the police department vehicles do. Megan Pitkin, Richland
