To The Daily Sun,
Over the past several weeks the number of vehicles that our patrol men and women have pulled over (and hopefully ticketed) has increased a lot. THANK YOU LACONIA POLICE DEPARTMENT! I live on Elm Street, and I'd say that 25 percent of drivers respect the posted speed limit, 50 percent exceed the limit plus or minus 10 miles per hour, and the last 25 percent drive 50 mph or even faster. There's a school near where I live, and I worry about the children. The scenario is worse during the night when the drivers apparently feel they're the only ones on the road, so therefore it's their road. I think the same situation exists on Union Avenue. Come on people — either slow down or leave earlier to meet your obligations. But mostly this is just a "thank you" to our police department.
