Dear Editor:

As a Calgary resident who travels frequently to Radium, especially during the summer, I think it is wonderful that people speeding on Highway 93 are finally being ticketed and punished.

Too many times have I seen or waited for vehicles to be pulled from ditches or for accidents to be cleared along that stretch of road.

People are always speeding excessively and passing on solid lines and putting their families and others at risk. Those who comment this is not effective have obviously not driven Highway 93 and witnessed the speeds driven.

I think it is very effective because as parents we are responsible for our actions, and for kids to have to wait on the side of the road because a parent is speeding, both parent and child are learning a lesson.

If one life is saved because that person slows down next time it is worth it!
