Stop signs

To the editor:

I think I have deciphered the word "stop" when it comes to college students, high school students and bicycle riders. I believe these groups feel this way:

S urely

T hat's for

O ther

P eople

Of course, this is my opinion - not the opinion of the various groups I mentioned - until they get in the way of the car that was in their way and get hit.

I always used to say, when my brother was in high school, that he thought STOP meant:

Skid Tires On Pavement

I don't care who is driving. There is a tremendous lack of adhearance to the law and an almost total lack of conisderation on the streets of our city by many people and groups.

The sad part is, more than one of our citizens will die during the coming year, because of poor/inconsiderate drivers. Can't we all try harder?

No, he has it right. College students run stop signs, the old folks drive slowly, the townies run red lights and rob convenience stores. See how nice stereotypes are :-) .

Wow, you took time out of your day to write a letter to the community simply because you don't like high schoolers, college students, and people who ride bikes.

That's just sad.

it should be mandatory that at the beginning of classes, all new college students take a refresher course on the rules and laws of driving.
