To the editor:
Aug. 8, 2018. This did happen!
At around 5 to 5:15 this did unfold! I heard a crash, as I woke up just below on Canim Hendrix Lake Road! In Forest Grove.
This was just below on Spuraway Road, on the right-hand side!
This poor doe deer was hit and debris was all over the road! It is a privilege to drive not a given!
Upon dawn and dusk, deer are at large, people speed on this road. All the time, their want indeed?
Animals were here before us, respect. We are encroaching on their space and it is depleting! I love the animals, the deer etc., and have been a vegetarian, for years, and this greatly disturbed me!
Maybe, one sign along the road I see about the deer. There should be one, right as you turn off onto Canim Hendrix Lake Road immediately! And at least half a dozen, along the way, also.
Deer are hit, at Gateway and several other places! It is the belief of the highways dept, that less is more, with the signs? I live here, and pay taxes!
Also, police should be out here way more often!
Cars, trucks and logging trucks speed, endlessly, on this road!
The cost for the beautiful animals, perhaps also the children?
The speed you want as your right. You have no right! Arrest all the speeders, who lay cost for everyone!
Or else get them off the road, they are a threat to all!
Also, as drivers’ manners are mentioned in the drivers manual! A little class perhaps goes a long way!
I want a change of care. Then perhaps we will be forever there!
