Please, Grove Church, do the right thing and sell your land to the Tulalip Tribes (“Tulalip Tribes worry about traffic, salmon in land sale case,” The Herald, Oct. 29).
140th Street NE cannot handle more cars on the road, it is a two-lane country road mostly without shoulders. Putting in houses at the corner and having all those extra vehicles entering the road would be a disaster. I have been following this plot for awhile and get updates from the county.
I have been driving this road for 25 years, I use to be able to get to my job in 15 minutes, it is now 30 to 40 minutes.
There is a steady stream of cars, going up and down the road. I watch in horror almost every morning as drivers pass up to eight cars because they don’t want to drive the speed limit. I believe those who pass are recent arrivals who most likely moved from the city or closer to towns where things were closer and easier to get to. When you get to the stop light 99 percent of the time you are behind the driver that almost caused an accident.
Drivers: Stop means stop at stop signs; don’t just run right through them. I have almost been hit more times than I can count by people refusing to follow the law! When you move out to rural land, life is slower, respect other drivers and the wild life that cross the roads.
