In an attempt to improve highway safety, Prunty County last year lowered its speed limit from 55 to 45 miles per hour on all county highways. But this effort has failed: the number of accidents has not decreased, and, based on reports by the highway patrol, many drivers are exceeding the speed limit. Prunty County should instead undertake the same kind of road improvement project that Butler County completed five years ago: increasing lane widths, resurfacing rough highways, and improving visibility at dangerous intersections. Today, major Butler County roads still have a 55 mph speed limit, yet there were 25 percent fewer reported accidents in Butler County this past year than there were five years ago.
I certainly agree “the gators” are fed by the viewing of horror films, and not just films but novels like Kings which they’re often based on. Also the alligators can get sleek and fat on a diet of TV programmes whose stories revolve around violence, lasciviousness, ruthlessness, and other negative human traits. TV productions which easily fit that bill include the Sword and Lust fantasy ‘Game of Thrones,’ old dramas like ‘Dallas,’ a great many modern TV detective dramas, and even soaps like ‘Coro St’ which these days seems to be all about people cheating on each other and then wanting revenge.
