I recently read a letter to the editor in KTW that detailed concerns about controlling speeding drivers.
Four months ago, I contacted the RCMP community policing section and spoke with a very nice person to whom I indicated I would like to volunteer to help control speeders in the Aberdeen area.
I was sent the City of Kamloops website link, where I filled out the form to volunteer for Speed Watch. There has been no response to my volunteering request.
After waiting seven weeks, I called the city’s traffic department and spoke with a very nice person, who assured me he would contact the RCMP with my request.
There has still been no response to my volunteering request.
The next time I hear that we need more police officers to enforce laws, I am going to go shout as loud as I can into the wind.
I am willing to help in a small way, just not complain. But it seems to have fallen on deaf ears as nobody seems to care that we have a serious problem with a small number of irresponsible speeders, a problem that could lead to an accident and possible death.
