Park speeders

I was taking my usual shortcut through Empire Mine Park this morning, and once again I was required to pull over at least twice. There are idiots that don’t understand the meaning of “Speed Limit” and want to go at least 30 miles per hour.

For those of us that don’t enjoy the possibility of getting tickets, we are pushed through the park or have to find an area to pull over and let them pass. I use this road at least three times a week and have the same thing happen at least two out of three times.

There is wildlife crossing the road sometimes, and people with their kids. I’d hate one of these to be the victim of a careless driver. It would be a tragedy. The speed limit is anywhere from 15 to 25 miles per hour through the park, and I don’t think it’s too much to ask that everyone obeys that.
