The off ramp of U.S. 40 to State Road 248 is the most dangerous traffic situation facing Park City. This morning I sat on the off ramp from 7:52 a.m. to 7:59 a.m. and watched 27 cars fly past me at drastically unsafe speeds, veering into the emergency lane to make a right turn, then an illegal U-turn to cut off everyone waiting to make a legal left turn into Park City.

Stop me from speeding up to the off ramp. Stop me from making unsafe left turns to smite the U-turners. Stop me from cutting through the Prospector neighborhoods to save the time that’s been stolen.

It’s bad enough that prices have forced me from my home in Park City clear out to Heber, but the least you could do is make the commute a little less asinine. BEFORE somebody gets killed. I demand a traffic light and widening of the entry corridor to the two lanes it was intended for.

Sincerely, Kristina Watkins Heber City

Show our friends respect


I am a student in Murray Utah. I have recently heard about H.B. 61, and I am very concerned. I love animals and hate that they are being hurt every day and their abusers get away with it.

I am sure you already know this, but studies show that many criminals and murderers started out hurting animals. Animals help us in so many ways, why shouldn’t they be shown as much respect as we would show a colleague or friend? An animal can be our friend or pet. If a friend of yours was being abused, wouldn’t you want their abuser to be punished? I know I would.

Please help us help our friends, the animals.

Sincerely, Danielle Romanczyk Murray, Utah
