Our driving to blame
In response to the March 22 Sound Off entitled: “Fix Canton Roads:” I must agree with the assessment regarding the poorly maintained roads, streets, rail crossings within the Village of Canton. I, too, drive on those streets each day several times to and from work. But this is where our agreement ends. The writer argues that, “These are heavily traveled roads but they are so bad they can damage tires and the steering on your car.” However, I would argue that it is driver habit and their actions that cause damage to car tires, steering, and other suspension/frame parts. It seems reasonable to me that if one knows they are traveling a poorly maintained road, then this should prompt them to drive an appropriate speed when maneuvering the damaged areas of the roads. When are we as a culture going to stop blaming and pointing the finger at others and Government for our choices.
