According to my odometer, the new 25-mph speed limit covers a distance of approximately 2.0 miles. This turns out to be a time extension of approximately 82 seconds to cover the same ground.
Pondering all of the things we should be concerned about these days, I find it extremely difficult to understand why some people are so upset by this. I know one thing for certain: An additional 82 seconds of my time will in no way keep me from shopping/dining somewhere in Pomeroy.
I have observed nothing but concern, caring and responsibility on the part of the Pomeroy Police Department. They do a marvelous job. And, after all, they are enforcing the law as we citizens would expect them to do.
We should certainly take time to “stop and smell the roses” or at least slow down to inhale the aroma.
