On page 2 of the Monitor dated Jan. 13, is the following statement relating to the two houses on Trinity Drive the county has purchased: “Trinity is limited to what you can do,” Anne Laurent said. “We intend to take the houses down to improve safety.” This is a very outrageous statement with no basis since the houses in no way impact safety on Trinity. What impacts safety is cars traveling speeds in excess of the posted limit; the county’s mismanagement of speed limits and traffic control devices; the county’s failed promises to construct islands the length of Trinity; sidewalks where pedestrians are forced to walk with their backs to the traffic with no protection from that traffic; and ineffective, but costly, snow and ice rearranging.
Speeds on Trinity are regularly in excess of the posted 35 mph limit. An analysis of those speeds would probably show a majority of the cars using Trinity are traveling an average of 45, not 35. Enforcement of the posted limit seems nonexistent. The county has mismanaged the speed limits on Trinity for many years.
