Speeding ticket reveals problems

To the editor:

Thank you for your note with the 2014 speeding ticket data. Wow! Nearly three tickets a month! I am not sure whether to be pleased that there were even that many or disheartened that there were so few. In an hour during certain times of the day, anyone with a radar gun could probably clock at least three cars going well above the speed limit on Morgan, Professor, College, Pleasant, and Hamilton streets. Evidently keeping a lid on speeders is not much of a priority for our local police. I wonder if things will change with our new police chief?
