    GOOD. I walk my dog daily around town. I see and hear things all the time.
    Hope they keep it up.

  2. Village of Twin Lakes says:

    How many people are these documents spread over?

    WARNING for failure to STOP at a stop sign? Must be that someone knew someone else. I depend on the OTHER GUY to stop. I stop. I expect them to stop. Really Stop not a pretend stop, or a kiss that stop but a REAL STOP. And they get a warning?

    No insurance….. ! aw, just like voter ID, we dont need it! NOT! Was the car impounded? I have insurance. I have insurance for under insured and UNinsurred because of these people. Costs me money to protect myself from these gamblers! They gamble that they wont get caught. They gamble that I will have insurance.

    Now comes Judgement. Will the Judge be lenient or use this as a lesson to protect my safety?
