Our readers wrote letters throughout 198 7 expressing their viewpoints on a variety of issues. Here are condensed versions of some of those letters. We appreciate their taking the time to share their viewpoints and look forward to hearing from you in 1988.
Orange County Transportation Commission Chairman and Supervisor Harriett Wieder challenging county business executives to get more involved in resolving our traffic problems is right on target. Car pools are good business and every effort should be made by all Orange County companies to urge their employees to car-,van- or bus-pool when at all possible.
Wieder's idea of urging a staggered work hour and delivery schedules to alleviate rush-hour traffic along with pooling rides is also a must if Orange County citizens are to expect gridlock relief. If Wieder's proposal does become a reality, badly designed car-pool lanes like the one on the Costa Mesa Freeway could also become a thing of the past.
Traffic congestion has become just as bad on our cities main thoroughfaresas it has on our freeways and we certainly cannot give every congested thoroughfare a car pool lane.
