Letter to the Editor: Slow down on the Glenshire Speedway

As a fairly recent commuter on the Glenshire Speedway over the last year or so, I am impressed at the hesitation of Glenshirefolk to drive the speed limit. Forty-five miles per hour may be slow for that stretch of road, but that is the posted limit. The stretch of road from Highway 267 to Teichert (the part that is 45 mph) is 4 miles. Going 45 mph takes 5 minutes 20 seconds. Going 55 mph takes 4 minutes 22 seconds.

People shouldn’t be in that much of a hurry to need to get somewhere 58 seconds sooner. So, slow down Truckee, enjoy the drive, where you live and get off my butt.
