A yellow line is all that separate us from seriously getting hurt countless times in the course of a day.
How can the occasional deer now put our safety so much in jeopardy?
Please, Mr. Mayor and company, direct your attention and our money towards more worthwhile issues rather than pursuing your pet-project, which is a losing cause to begin with, since no one is willing to help. (They know better.)
My advice for you, Mr. Mayor, bow out of the issue graciously, while you can, before your name goes down unfavourably in the chronicles of our community.
