Slow down on Hwy 2A: reader

Pipestone Flyer reader angry about dangerous driving

Dear editor,

I have lived in Millet just under two years and I love it here, but one thing I hate is the amount of dangerous drivers on Hwy 2A. Dangerous passing, speeding, slow drivers (distracted) and on and on.

Speeders gain nothing by trying to pass everything in front of them no matter what just to gain a couple of seconds. I now report everybody driving excessively. I bought a dash cam (recommended) to prove to the RCMP and so far to great success. Slow driving (80 km/hr and less) is just as dangerous and equally stupid. These people aren’t drivers they just steer.

I encourage everybody to phone RCMP or 911 to report. You just might save the life of someone you hold dear.

Gord Redford, Millet
