Letter: Law enforcement needed on U.S. 181

Editor:

Now that the speed limit has been changed for us in the Wilson County area to 65 mph on U.S. 181, I have been wondering just where the law enforcement is, to stop those that absolutely refuse to abide by the speed limit. I adhere to the limit, but am getting tailgated or passed by and left in a puff of wind as the cars fly past me.

As the victim of an 18-wheeler causing a very bad accident involving my family, I appreciate the lower limits, but these seem to be a joke for many out there on the roads. In the past three weeks, I have not observed one Highway Patrol car pulling these speeders over, and I have yet to see anyone that plows through the main drive of our town stopped either.

I am begging those that be, to put more officers out on the roads to stop this very dangerous offense, and protect those of us that do obey the speed limit. I know that I speak for many of us.
