Letter: Good job, Pitkin County Sheriff Department

I would like to thank the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Department for patrolling the ramp at the airport heading to Aspen. Every morning I witness grown-ups driving to Aspen and turning at the lights to the airport, then going down the ramp, in order to get ahead of the bottleneck traffic going into Aspen. They proceed in the bus lane to Buttermilk, going at a good clip, and they are three minutes ahead of everyone else.

Pitkin County can make a little extra cash by charging the stray traffic $20 a pop at the booth leaving the airport ramp. Maybe it’s worth it to the folks who can’t wait their turn in the traffic to Aspen, and Pitkin County can make a good sum of cash on the side due to commuter’s impatience.

Why not stop at Roxie’s for some breakfast? Enjoy your idle at 3 miles per hour with a hot meal!
