Dear editor,

What is the purpose of a road diet? Is it to force people to slow down? Is it to avoid automobile and bicycle accidents?

In my opinion, it doesn’t do either. Road diets don’t stop accidents from occurring. It surely won’t prevent reckless drivers from slowing down.

What does? Putting speed bumps in places that are dangerous like roads that have curves (like by St. Raymond’s Cemetery), forcing drivers to slow down, and installing speed cameras that run 24/7, so that you can record those reckless drivers who don’t slow down – no matter what time it is.
