Edward Torres of Roswell, New Mexico is justifiably indignant about the safety of pedestrians at the Post Office on Pennsylvania Avenue. Motorists driving south on Pennsylvania will often turn left across the double yellow lines crossing in front of north bound traffic and into the USPS parking lot. These drivers are looking out for oncoming traffic as opposed to walking post office customers. This, obviously, places pedestrians walking in front of the post office at a high risk of being struck by a reckless driver.
People walking into or out of the post office are at risk of being hit by a driver whisking into a parking space. Torres rightly suggests that RPD place traffic officers at the post office and that the officer’s salary would be paid by the fines imposed. His letter to the editor of the RDR titled The Most Dangerous Place in Roswell is hyperbolic, but certainly drives home a good point and alerts citizens to be careful around the Roswell Post Office.
