giving in to the "cheap Chinese trinkets". You are right when you say I can't imagine how terrifying it is to take a walk down main st and have a truck bearing down on me at 50 mph. First of all, I rarely have time to take a walk since I am a working person and am typically working 45 hours or so a week so that I can afford a cheap trinket. Secondly, there seems to almost always be a sheriff sitting parked on main st waiting for the speeders. If there is not, then I respectfully refer you back to my first point.
I never intended with my first post to offend anyone, I only intended to offer a different perspective. What I find so interesting is that I have received 13 private responses all thanking me for my realistic approach to this issue. I also find it a little bit scary that those that do agree with me seem to feel they have to stay in the background on this.
