U.S. 278 needs this new ac­tion

The Island Packet - - Opinion -

Some­thing re­ally needs to be done with the U.S. 278 cor­ri­dor traf­fic.

There are ac­ci­dents al­most ev­ery morn­ing, caus­ing ma­jor back-ups.

I feel that the Beau­fort County Sher­riff’s Of­fice needs to forgo set­ting up radar checks on the Cross Is­land Park­way and al­lo­cate all of­fi­cers to the area be­tween Malphrus Road and Wind­mill Har­bour.

I am not talk­ing about just speed­ing, but the real prob­lem: dis­tracted driv­ers. The po­lice need to start giv­ing out tick­ets for driv­ers tex­ting or talk­ing on their cell phones. I see it ev­ery sin­gle day, so there is no way the po­lice do not see it.

This is sim­ply get­ting worse and worse and is a blight on Beau­fort County. – Mark T. Megliore Bluffton
