To the Editor:
On April 8 a deer was hit on Pearl Street. Now you say it’s just an animal, I have observed the deer herds for two years, they are smart, curious and non-aggressive animals, contrary to what hunters say.
Now I know accidents happen but when I see people going down Pearl, speeding, texting, and talking on their cell phone, you are not taking responsibility for your driving. Last week I saw a blue van passing two cars on double yellow lines.
Last fall I called the police department to see if they could set radar up, on Pearl. We’d not seen a police car most of the winter, then I called the city administrator to get deer signs put on Pearl. He said no, but assured me they would set radar up. I even gave permission to sit in our driveway. That was two months ago. I have seen one cruiser in that time.
So drivers, take responsibility for your driving, the deer do cross Pearl a lot, especially in the early morning hours. We are taking so much of their land away, there is nowhere else for them to go.
