Vail Daily letter: Drive safely
January 3, 2013
As I left my home today to take a walk on this beautiful, sunny New Year’s Day, I noticed several individuals who had been stopped along U.S. Highway 6 in Eagle, possibly for speeding.
Before the barrage of comments suggesting that this may be a “speed trap,” please be reminded that folks have had businesses and lived along this U.S. highway through our community for more than 100 years.
There are adjacent businesses, homes and trails along this highway. The ECO trail has two crossings. I cross this highway to walk to work, and my children crossed this highway to catch the school bus.
Special thanks to those individuals who choose to respect our community by driving the speed limit, stopping at the crosswalks for those crossing and patiently waiting for those turning left into our homes and to support our local businesses.
Happy new year!
