Slow traffic on Cedar Valley Connector

Rumble strips should be installed along major thoroughfare

Editor, The Record:

Is it going to take someone getting killed before something is done to slow down the traffic on the Cedar Connector? Probably. And doing something after the fact isn’t good enough for me or for anyone who has travelled that section of road and lived to tell the tale.

In the past two weeks there have been serious accidents on the Connector, one of which involved a good friend of mine, which only makes me all the more angry at the idiots who think that that section of road is their own personal raceway.

Sure, the traffic slows down when the police are there with their radar equipment but obviously they can’t be there every day. So it should be a no-brainer that rumble strips are placed at the intersection between the two malls. And not just a few either. Place them up and down that strip of road so no one gets a head of steam up as it is way too easy to let gravity, distracted drivers, and self-centered jerks reach lift-off speeds.

If the bike riders don’t like those strips then there are plenty of other hills that they can use.

For now it’s just me saying please do something about that stretch of road before it’s one of your friends getting hurt.
