The Slice

Feedback on today’s print Slice

Got an email from a woman who was absolutely irate about a newcomer's thumbs-down verdict on Spokane's uncontrolled intersections in residential areas.

For one thing, she was angered by the idea of spending money on additional stop signs (which isn't going to happen) when the city is strapped for cash.

Referring to the newcomer quoted in the column, she asked "Hasn't she ever heard of right-of-way?"

Well, I suspect she has heard of it. But we're talking about Spokane. So she probably just hasn't seen it properly observed all that often.

Besides, right-of-way isn't much protection when some numbnuts is blowing through an intersection at 40 mph.
