To The Daily Sun,
The recent rainy day reminded me of the last rainy day we had and the poor visibility because of the rain. However, nothing is better than seeing lights on the approaching cars — we can actually see you — and the darker the car, the harder it is to spot you in the distance. So please do us older folks a favor (and yourself), when it starts to rain or dusk is fast approaching, put on your headlights.
And while on the subject of safety, how about the police departments of Laconia, Belmont and Tilton start cracking down on those people who are in such a hurry that they barrel through red lights. Specifically, at Exit 20 off Interstate 93, the lights at Rte. 3 and the beginning of Rte. 140 (Tilton police), intersection of 106 and 140 (Belmont police) and the intersection of Bishop Road and Rte. 106 (Laconia police). Do you know how much extra money you could make for your towns by just enforcing the law?
At those intersections, my wife and I have now gotten in the habit of waiting when our light turns green, just so we don't get plowed into by those running the light on our left or right. Sorry for those behind us if we don't take off right away, you don't need to honk at us. We aren't oblivious to the green light, we are just trying to be safe.
