  1. It”s about time something is being done. The safety of the oilam is our main concern. Just see how many people are in bed or recuperating from injuries sustained in accidents. Rachmono nitzlan.

  2. LPD shouldn’t need a grant to write tickets. I’m glad this grant is specifically to write cell phone tix but this needs to be enforced every day !
