EDITOR:

I’m getting very fed up with tailgaters in my drive from my apartment in Mount Stewart to Charlottetown. Often, I'm in three times a week. Things are usually OK in the 90-km zone, but after York Road where the speed limit it 60 km, I have to contend with a driver on my bumper because I choose to drive the speed limit of 60. At least four times in the past two months I've pulled over in anger and let tailgaters pass me.

If I knew how to give the finger, I probably would. Back a couple of years ago, I had a conversation with an RCMP officer about speeders on Monday morning when I would be driving to my one-day-a-week-job. The following Monday, the RCMP set up a radar and caught 35 speeders. Yea. Good for them.

I'd like to see the RCMP catch a few more of these tailgaters, who, when I pull over, go past me at top speed in a 60 zone. Shame on them, and I do hope they get caught.

Kathy Birt,

Mount Stewart
