Letter on Breckenridge driving lacked purpose; but speeding is a problem

The March 27 letter your paper printed by Susan Ferguson Roberts seemed to lack any purpose other than name-calling and accusations. 

Shouldn’t we all be concerned about our communities, the safety of others,and respectfulness on the road? The speed limit issue comes up time and time again and is a real concern.

Happily, the Frisco Police Department does a good job of traffic control, but I have many friends who complain about the lack of adherence to speed limits in Breck. 

Many wonder just what the police department is doing about it. We have a high number of pedestrians in our towns and motorists should simply slow down, appreciate the tourists and and treat others with respect.

Letter-writer says comments about driving in Breckenridge not meant to be personal

I read the rebuttal letters to the editor from several people disagreeing with my letter published March 27 about driving issues in Breckenridge.

It was not my intention to make a personal attack on anyone’s character or to say that speeding is OK.

I actually am not a speeding offender, but I was extremely irritated with the “Oprah” comments – like we have nothing better to do. I believe the point I was trying to convey was not clearly stated by my letter.
