letter to the editor
Farragut, a great place to live?


While I agree totally that mistreated puppies, barking dogs, the neighborhood of Waterford and even red-light cameras have received more than enough print.

I just as vehemently disagree that Farragut is “a great town” to live in.

I stood in line at the post office for 50 minutes the other day with another patiently waiting customer while one of the two clerks present got up and went to lunch. Not very great.

Unacceptable, disturbing and very dangerous, however, is drivers ignoring the posted speed limits. Farragut’s speed limit is “25 mph unless posted otherwise.”

Perhaps two percent of drivers obey this law. The rest choose doing whatever speed fits their needs, driving between 40 and 55 mph in residential areas posting speed limits of 25 and 30 mph.

Has anyone ever noticed? Does anyone care?

I ask the mayor, the sheriff, why does the city of Farragut have speed limits if they are not enforced?
