Re " 'Keep Out' Echoes From O.C. Canyons," Aug. 22: NIMBYism is one of California's biggest hobbies. Everyone wants to tell someone else what to do with their property. NIMBYs kept badly needed power plants from being built in South Gate and the City of Industry. NIMBYs belatedly killed an El Toro international airport seven years after it was approved by voters. NIMBYs have thus far stopped home building projects at Huntington Beach and Dana Point and elsewhere for many, many years.

Re "Filling the Need for Speed," June 5: I have been motorcycle riding on Sundays with the same group since the early 1970s. Usually, Ortega Highway in Orange County is part of the ride. Agreed, there are occasional idiots, as can be found in any complex endeavor where a training class has not been conducted, but they are few. Motorcyclists are a friendly and responsible group. We are polite with the California Highway Patrol officers and they are friendly and polite to us--even inquisitive as to our thoughts about certain bikes.

California Highway Patrol officers will soon begin using radar guns to catch speeders along about 15 miles of curvy Santiago Canyon Road. CHP officers will begin ticketing speeders based on the readings starting April 3 along the section from Orange to Live Oak Canyon Road, CHP Officer Angel Johnson said. Traffic along the road has increased fivefold in recent years, she said, making it impractical to use only patrol cars to catch speeders.
