Letters to the Editor

Stay off phone while driving

At 8:20 a.m., Wednesday, June 22, I was nearly broadsided by a silver hatchback-type vehicle that blew the stop sign at the intersection of SE Eighth Avenue and SE Ely Street. I was traveling north on Ely and could clearly see the driver talking on a cell phone. I had to slam on my brakes since the driver didn’t even slow down, treating the intersection as though it wasn’t there.

If I had left my residence one or two seconds earlier, you’d probably not be reading this letter. Further “ad hominem” remarks are left to your imagination.
