Slow down in downtown

October 26, 2011

Dear Editor,

Is 30 MPH through downtown too fast? I think so.

It seems like where ever I go these days, the traffic in and around Clarkston is moving way too fast. Worst of all is right downtown between Waldon and Washington - right where people are walking. We have far too many semi trailers, haulers and utility vehicles that forget what a refined space that is and how easy it would be for someone (possibly a child) to walk out between the cars. Commercial vehicles arenít alone; in general all traffic needs to slow down and keep downtown safe. Do we need to change the speed limit to 20 MPH through that stretch?
