- I agree with the GMD letter. 3 years ago I wrote a similar letter which was never published. It is madness to have vehicles of all types hurtling down GMD at 45mph inches from cyclists; as the thru traffic tends to be in a hurry this means that they drive at the limit of 45 or just over, slowed down only by the occasional slower driver who is then tailgated and/or cursed at, or the sight of a LBK patrol car. Slower traffic should lead to less thru traffic and less noise.
Slow the traffic down!
- I agree with the Gulf of Mexico Drive letter.
As well as the road being a 25mph road I think it also needs a lot more crosswalks. To have a 14 mile long road with only 2 crosswalks and a bridge is mind boggling and extremely unsafe especially considering the amount of tourists and elderly people on the island.
