Tyler Parkway Needs Better Police Patrols

Editor:

Tyler Parkway has turned into a dangerous speedway. How about our gendarmes issuing some citations? Only twice in the past two years have I seen an officer there with his radar gun at the ready.

Budget or manpower problems?

Do the math: one officer, one day. Two tickets per hour at $150 each. That's $300 per hour, times eight hours. They could make $2400 a day, because there are no slow days on Tyler.

It should be quite enough to keep things legal, and safe, on Tyler Parkway.
