Letter to the editor: Let’s ‘slow down for a safer town’

Showering love to those suffering from the tragic death of nine-year-old Tilly Boulanger, who was hit by a motorist last Thursday when she ran into Weybridge Street unexpectedly. In memory, let’s remind one another to slow down for a safer town and be extra aware, especially on Weybridge Street, where children are about. Our temptation in rushed, distracted lives is to creep 5 to 10 or more miles over posted speed limits. We can choose to drive at or under the speed limit on densely populated streets. Walkers hit by cars at 40 mph have a 15 percent survival rate while those hit at 20 mph have 85 percent chance of survival.
