Another possible solution would be to install traffic control at the intersection of the monument at Fifth St/Gregory Blvd/Marvin Road... where those drivers who like to race down to the beach anticipate the widening from 1 lane to 2 with a delicious "S" curve to make the ride that much more fun. Instead of slowing down, racers and motorcycles like to gun the engines and pay no attention to pedestrian traffic. This would slow the traffic down somewhat. The drivers coming from Fifth Street have to stick their cars out so far into that intersection because of the inability to see around the overgrown bushes on the north side of the street, making further hazards. There have been so many accidents at that intersection in the last couple of years that it makes me wonder if the city is paying any attention at all. An intersection with a historically high number of wrecks begs a traffic study. The road is ONE lane all the way from 95 to the beach except for this patch between the park and the marina... if cars can survive one lane all that way, why so important to spread out into 2 lanes for a quarter mile?

Why not just have a law (I thought there might even be one) that says door to door ANYTHING is illegal. Do not support it, do not listen to the pitch, just politely say you are not interested. Peddling is illegal. And don't get me started on the ice cream trucks...... what an easy way to canvas a neighborhood and find out where the kids are.
If there is an "alarming increase in the number of strays in Fairfield County", why is it that "dozens of animals are brought in from a shelter in Georgia for adoption by local families"? This makes no sense to me. View Comment
