With the school year about to start up, one has to wonder where it will be. Will it be on Bethany (again), will it be on Freemanville or maybe it's Birmingham Road's turn? Anybody's guess really.
I would like to tell you the odds are much less this year due to all the hard work and planning that our city council has done. I would like to tell you without a doubt that your loved ones are much safer traveling through our open road neighborhoods now than before. I would like to tell you that our wonderful Milton Police department has received an outpouring of incredible support for the lives they save every day by enforcing the law...even while being overworked and understaffed. I would like to tell you all of this, but I can't because nothing has been done.
A preventable death is coming this year. It will be in one of our open road neighborhoods. Speed will be the primary factor.
One has to wonder when that time comes, what the excuses will be then. I guess that is ok. After all, excuses are a dime a dozen. Too bad lives aren't as well.
Here is hoping I am wrong. God, I hope I am wrong.
