I can't agree more with the writer of "Enforce traffic laws" in Thursday's Sound Off. It is a free for all on our roads. I speak particularly of Gulfport--Pass Road, U.S. 90, and Cowan/Lorraine Road, It is very apparent that Gulfport PD has little interest in making our roads safe by putting forth some effort to enforce the traffic laws. Speed limits are grossly ignored, red lights are frequently run. I clearly understand that our police departments have their hands full chasing and catching bad guys but enforcing traffic laws should be a part of an overall strategy.
Not in the South
Has anyone else noticed that the race issues, protests and killings are not happening in the South? We don't hate and fight with each other. We are friends, neighbors and co-workers. We are Southerners and Mississippians, all of us, black and white. I'm sick of the media labeling us. Are we perfect? Not even close. But look where the problems are happening, not here.
Never miss a local story.
Thanks for the help
Wanted to say thanks to Pop A Lock. My dog accidently stepped on the door lock and locked himself in my running car. Pop A lock responded immediately and they do it for free if a dog is locked inside. Great company and policy. Thank you so much.
Watch our boarders
The horrendous Paris assault by Islamic terrorists should be a wake up call to our government leaders that we need to enforce our laws and protect our borders. And we should be very careful who we allow entry into our great country.
The funding issue
The problem is not "adequate" funding, but allocation of funding. If education priorities were realigned, there would be more than "adequate" funding for the items you mentioned. Money flows where the interest lies.
