Modest Proposal for Traffic Safety


Honorable Mayor & Commissioners,
City of DeLand,
120 S. Florida Ave.,
DeLand, FLA 32720.

Subject: Fencing Out Danger

In order to protect citizens from a certain hazard, the City of DeLand is considering the erection of a fence around the pond in Earl Brown Park. This is a commendable step to assure public safety, but it fails to entirely eliminate hazard from the lives of DeLand residents.

Certain that the Commission, aware of the danger, will act promptly, I cite the portion of State Road 44 between DeLand and New Smyrna as a danger to the public. This dangerous section of roadway is an attractive nuisance, drawing beach-bound travelers as surely as ponds draw children.

Now that the Commission knows the problem, I am sure that they will wish to erect a fence across SR 44 at Hill Street. By stopping travelers who otherwise would venture into unsafe territory, the City will save lives every year.

I have confidence that no one will seek an alternate route to SR 44, just as I am certain that fences will prevent youths from wading in duck ponds. You may be assured that modest investments in chain link will save many lives.

A single life saved is worth more than the cost of the hardware. Please act immediately, before any more lives are lost in the ‘‘kill zone’’.
