Hey Lawrence police - why don't you patrol Folks road! Cars zip up and down this road 50 mph +. Hope this lady will be OK but our police need to do a better job of patrolling this road as it has been a speed problem for years (I know, I live off of this road) It is posted for 35 mph.

Hey Lawrence police - why don't you enforce jaywalking pedestrians think they have the right of way any where they are. i guess the city could save money by not putting any more crosswalks in because no one uses them. everyday while driving around town someone jumps out in front of me just lucky i haven't ran anyone over yet.

Hey Lawrence police - why don't you hire about 150 more officers so that you can be everywhere and enforce everything for everyone. OH- except for the people who complain that the polcie are everywhere now and all of our personal freedoms are being taken away - I guess we will just have to leave that group unhappy.

Speed bumps and a roundabout may put a damper on that.

I blame it on those darn irresponsible cyclists. If they followed the rules of the road pedestrians wouldn't get struck by SUVs.
