Every since reading Ms. McVey’s post regarding Fair Street on a local website I have debated with myself about responding. You see I also live on Fair St., between Anthony St. and Tollison St., and as Ms McVey complained, we do have our share of speeders. However, my office overlooks Luckie St (also a residential thru street) and it usually looks like a racetrack as well. Also I seem to recall that MLK has had some serious traffic issues in the past. In fact, let’s face it - people will speed when they can and Baxley is far short of the needed officers to keep each and every street patrolled at all times. As for Fair St., I have often seen patrol cars on our street both night and day. In the midst of the long lines of people who bring their children from all over the county to Trick or Treat on Fair Street, I appreciate the way they are extremely visible, keeping the little ones safe and the big ones in line! Often they are giving out candy too!
