A cheap penalty
I just read the letter about y’all finally patrolling Killer 82 and fining those who violate the HOV lane rules (“Mind your HOV … PitCo deputies are watching you (and ticketing),” Oct. 9): $66 is pretty cheap.
Since I moved to Las Vegas a year ago after living in the Roaring Fork Valley for 12 years, I certainly notice the difference. Here the fines for breaking the traffic rules are much steeper. I just got a speeding ticket going 10 miles over in a residential 25 mph zone (not a school zone) ” the fine … a whopping $190! This was my first ticket in over 10 years. I’ll watch those speed limit signs more closely now.
Happy trails from my new Nevada plates that say “ZGASPEN” ” I had to change the old plates after the ticket ” bad karma. Be safe and appreciate what you have ” living in the Roaring Fork Valley is truly a privilege.
Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.
If you don't follow the rules, your comment may be deleted.
It’s hard to fight City Hall and even harder to fight well-funded neighbors who don’t want any development near them, a local man has realized. So he settled for less than what he and his partner bought the property for.
