Letter: Would like to see more police, not fewer

To the editor:

In response to a letter on July 27 from Tom Craciunoiu: If he is not speeding or breaking a law, why be concerned about where the police are?

In fact, I wish there were more police monitoring the town.

Many residents have the same complaints:

1. Using the turn lane at Hawthorne Drive and 46 East as a launching pad, then cutting over in front of cars.

2. Failure to yield at 46 and 135. Leaving CVS, this has happened many times.

3. Cars cutting through the Speedway lot. This poses a problem for pedestrians and cars backing out.
