Letter: Heed Posted Speed Limit

Letter: Heed Posted Speed Limit

To the Editor:

I'm writing in response to Phil Boughton's letter to the editor in the April 17 edition of the Mount Vernon Gazette. I live in one of the neighborhoods along Sherwood Hall Lane and cross it on foot almost daily from one of the Fairfax Connector bus stops.

In his letter, Mr. Boughton claims that "citizens are ticketed because of the lack of a left turn lane on Sherwood Hall Lane." I respectfully suggest instead that citizens are ticketed for failing to observe the posted speed limit and the No Passing signs on Sherwood Hall Lane.

Heed the speed limit, stop passing on the right, and Sherwood Hall Lane will be safer for everyone. Thanks.

Bob McFadden, Alexandria
