Wiser spending preferred

In response to Chic Burge’s letter (“Studded tires worth it,” Sept. 29), the point was made that $15 million was worth saving the lives of inexperienced winter drivers.

However, tax dollars are not infinite. They need to be spent in a manner that provides maximum return.

Far more lives could be saved if even just part of that $15 million went towards hiring additional police officers to monitor and stop speeding, drunk and/or aggressive drivers.

And this would keep all of us safer all year long, not just inexperienced teenage drivers going snowboarding.
