Pundit wants to keep Green Park Road safe by not ‘improving’ a thing

To the editor:

Headline in the Nov. 4 Call: “Bids to be opened today for long-awaited Green Park Road improvement project.”

I maintain this is all a big mistake. When was the last time you heard of an accident on Green Park Road? And why is that?

Because drivers on that narrow, hilly road keep their undivided attention upon driving — not texting, eating breakfast, putting on makeup or whatever else they would be doing if they were not driving on our “improved” roads. Interstate 270 — a safer roadway would be hard to find — comes to mind. When is the last time you heard of an accident on that “improved” roadway?

How about every five minutes or so?

So let’s keep us drivers safe by not “improving” a thing. It may well be the most dangerous road in the state, but like I said: When is the last time you heard of an accident on Green Park Road?
