Bus lanes a cop-out

Dear Editor: Today’s drive to work was slowed down by a plethora of dump trucks, a bunch of construction company vehicles with one person in them, a parcel of panicked parents driving their kids to school, and a RFTA bus going way too fast.Aspen voters, please let the elected officials know that you think that dedicated bus lanes are a cop-out. The county and city need to work together to come up with other alternatives besides awarding RFTA priority to get in and out of Aspen. I believe that we need to use the millions of dollars that Tim Semrau claims is in the housing budget to get families back into Aspen.Finally, I have a real hard time supporting the city and county agenda for a dedicated bus lane when they allow RFTA to get away with blatantly speeding through our valley, endangering the lives of those on the buses and on the highway.Kim VieiraAspen
