Slow driver concerned about speed on Highway 9

This letter is a matter of free speech in America. I have two things I would like to say concerning safety at school crossings and Highway 9 south of Kremmling.

As the school season starts back up , I have witnessed drivers failing to slow down, speeding through the school crossings in Kremmling when the yellow light is flashing. There is a trailer parked along side of the highway that shows how fast you are going. I have seen it read 40 or 50 mph from the car in front of me, or the cars on the other side of the highway.

Denver has a solution to this problem: stiff fines if you are caught 15 mph over the limit.

And Highway 9 south of Kremmling is more deadly than ever, all the way to Silverthorne. The road construction will not slow these idiots down. People in their four-wheel drives think they own the road or something and try to drive over the top of you.

My little car is not a four-wheel drive and it cannot take all the bumps too well, nor the bangs that go with it. My car will end up all over the road if I do not slow down to 25 mph, and I risk getting killed because nothing is being done to slow these lunatics down on the weekends.

And you end up with all of these maniacs and lunatics racing through the road construction at break-neck speed.

I have a hidden camera. I do not know if the pictures will come out or not. In the meantime, it is time for the state of Colorado to take action immediately or risk facing a lawsuit should something happen to me, the State Patrol as well, and I mean today.
