To the Editor:
Recently, you published a letter from a fellow reader who asked why the police aren’t serving and protecting the public by stopping drivers who drive without their headlights on in foul weather.
Indeed, I drive slower than 75 percent of the cars on the road, and I received two speeding tickets in the past eight months. What about the 75 percent of the drivers who think speeding is a right and a privilege? Apparently, I’m easier to catch.
What about the danger presented by aggressive tailgaters? I’ve never seen so many as I see in Crystal Lake. Why is that legal?
What about serving and protecting the public? And most of all, why do the police watch for speeders while hiding in the bushes?
We all know that if the police drove down the roads and streets along with the rest of us who they supposedly are serving and protecting, every driver in sight would slow down. They know that. Why don’t they do it?
