I'm very tired of reading from the poor people who have to pay a fine because they are speeding in school zones or hitting a red light.

When you hit a red light, you put all the people who have green in a life danger situation and take the right away from other traffic members.

Who do you think you are — to give you the right to do this? I never did. Speeding in school zones and getting a ticket from a camera — why do you complain? It never happened to me because I drive the speed limit.

You are endangering the lives of innocent children with your reckless speeding and driving behavior. On top of that, there is a lawyer (Mr. Herman Brewer) who lets you know and gives you help. He shows you how you can go around a ticket, which you deserve from your reckless driving and behavior.

Stop whining and drive like you're supposed to drive by law. If the child of Mr. Herman Brewer were in an accident from a speeding red light driver, he never ever would make any suggestions like he does in the article on Aug. 17.

Shame over a lawyer who helps reckless drivers. Maybe he should start thinking about the potential victims of these selfish, thoughtless drivers.

I'm living now almost 20 years in Federal Way, drive daily — no ticket and no accident. Red is red and green is green. I think everybody understands this, and 25 mph is 25, not 35.

PS: Also, I drove 25 years in Germany without any tickets.

Lothar Gauf, Federal Way
