LETTER: Ignoring the rules for HOV lanes is easy

Updated July 16, 2019 - 12:48 am

I have been using car-pool lanes for more than 30 years on a daily basis and have had a second occupant maybe twice in that time. I have never been issued a citation for this issue. I figure that if I do get ticketed for driving solo, the penalty costs divided by 30 years of using car-pool lanes reduces the fine to a petty toll.

I will continue to utilize the car-pool lanes, especially when driving solo. Troopers from the Nevada Highway Patrol have followed me, passed me and have led me through the car-pool lanes. They have even given me the dirty eye when they realized that I was alone.

Ever since the so-called 24-hour enforcement in Las Vegas, I have continued using the car-pool lanes. Seems as though only a few NHP troopers really care about doing their jobs. I can’t blame them with the beginner’s pay they get and the sad leadership they follow.

LETTER: When did politics turn into a giant temper tantrum?

I see a lot of people on both sides with “temper tantrums.” How are we to teach our children if they see adults with angry words and demonstrations in the streets?

LETTER: Donald Trump isn’t great …

… but I am seriously considering voting for him next year, if only to prevent some Democratic socialist from being elected.

LETTER: On Baltimore, President Donald Trump and rats

Enough already about the rats. Michael Ramirez, in his Aug. 5 political cartoon, used that topic to get in a swipe against Baltimore and the residents of that large and historic city.
