Your View: Don’t speed

By Donna Goodson
Special to The Globe

JOPLIN, Mo. — To the individual driving the vehicle who came within 6 inches of my person before stopping on Friday, Feb. 8, in the crosswalk at 15th Street and Highview Avenue, I say: “Shame on you.” You were nowhere to be seen coming from the west when I entered the crosswalk.

To the rest of you, please do not speed in school zones and please watch for students/crossing guards in the designated crosswalks.
