Can you hear me now?


To the Editor:

I am a daily West Chop walker and I find that speed limit stations and signs that read  “Drive Like Your Children Live Here,” go unnoticed because drivers are holding their cellphones while driving, often over the speed limit, oblivious to walkers, even those pushing baby carriages. Whatever happened to common courtesy and pedestrian safety? I deplore the use of hand-held cellphones while driving and urge that this Island think hard about a resolution to this increasing problem.
