Letter to the Editor-Lusby

Every day on the streets of Mesquite, drivers are running stop signs, stop lights, tail gating and speeding. There is not a day that goes by I am almost hit by one of these drivers. If I honk at them to get their attention they just give the finger. I ask you where the police to enforce the driving laws are.

    How true! I moved to Mesquite in a 55 plus development because I thought it would be a small, safe town to live in. Unfortunately, many, if not most, of these drivers apparently live in Sun City. I realize the police department does not have the man power to constantly monitor careless, reckless and dangerous drivers. Maybe they could do a concentration with assist from the Highway Patrol or Las Vegas like they do for DUI checkpoints. I believe one week of this kind of effort could produce enough income to add two more police officers for Mesquite, not to mention the profits insurance companies could make from increasing rates for those fools. Something needs to be done for our safety.

      Lets have gov’t and police regulate more of our liberties. Its reactions like yours that lead society to nazi totalitarian secure dictatorship. Why dont you just kindly ask people to respect the road instead of crying for govt to step in and hold unconstitutional check points? its people like you who have no idea that freedom is living next door to some one you cant stand yet instead of embracing it are so quick to toget the regulators involved to tell u how to drive. Dont complain till u get hit.. I dont want my liberties violated because you ALMOST got hit. Love thy neighbor even. the ones who run stop signs. When they hit you forgive them dont cry for the police to handle your affairs…
