LETTERS TO THE EDITOR | Second Street change ‘ridiculous’

To the editor:
I am writing about the elimination of the loading zone for the delivery trucks on Second Street.
First of all, I was always told as an employee by employers that the closer parking spots to a business were for the customers, not the employees.
Second of all, it seems to me like there is a definite safety concern here having the delivery trucks blocking the street. I think that the mayor needs to seriously rethink this and look at the big picture!
People having to drive around delivery trucks is, need I say, dangerous! I can see it now! All it is going to take is one accident due to the new arrangement and it is going to hit the proverbial fan more than it already has. Even going slow, someone maneuvering around the delivery truck is going to meet up with someone driving out of the parking lot or much worse —- a delivery person is going to get hit.
Things worked so much better for all concerned with the trucks safely in a loading zone. It’s all great to look ahead to the new design, Mr. Kwarsick, but until that new design is in place, this change is obviously ridiculous!
