Letter: Sunday morning drivers not the biggest threat



The Carmel Police Dept. has recently enhanced its enforcement of speed limits on numerous collector and arterial thoroughfares in the city, most noticeably on Sunday mornings. This, apparently, is an effort to apprehend residents running late on their way to church.

Now, it is widely known and appreciated that Carmel has a low crime rate. But the notion that the greatest threat to taxpayers is people going to church defies reason. I suggest our tax dollars might be better spent patrolling Keystone and Meridian on Friday and Saturday nights, when there are real live drunk drivers out there in need of arrest. I suspect that most of the folks being apprehended and ticketed on Sunday mornings are sober and pious. Awesome.
