Letters: Slow down for scooters

Local scooter-user was almost run down by speeding truck

Oh, boy! Am I mad. I was on my scooter going to Village Foods, and when the light turned green I was crossing the street. A truck was whistling by, and I almost crashed with the truck. He yelled at me to “… get out of my way!” I have had this scooter for two years.  I am very careful crossing the street, but this guy was going at too fast a clip. Furthermore, his truck whistled by and wind was in my face.

This has to stop. I was shaking as I went to the store. I have a flag, and a big machine, and this has happened three times, so on the fourth one, I’ll be dead.

Get real folks!  I am not invisible. Sometimes, I must be when your car or truck goes faster than I do.  Be aware. I don’t want to be dead.
