You know I wonder if Mr Leghart feels the same about the government telling him what he can or cannot preach from the pulpit. Traffic cameras are always abused and an infringement on our constitutional rights.

If they wanted to do this then why not just put a patrol vehicle there. Also, what exactly would be the violation? If the trucks are properly marked, escorted, and permitted then what is the violation?

I just think we'll stop traveling through Carrollton. Take our business somewhere else! Let this backwards village stay backwards! They simply need to tell the Lucas's you knew the house was right on a tight turn on a major highway. Sorry about your luck!

What about the railroad tie wall at the other end of town near Speedway. It looks like it too has been hit and damaged by passing vehicles. I don't hear that land owner screaming fowl. Is the town going to put a traffic camera there too, paid for by my tax dollars. This is bologna. lucas knew what was what when they purchased that property, that actually appears to be ON state right of way. Let them pay for their own damage and stop blaming everyone else. I'd like to see the State come in and claim eminent domain, then widen that section of road to at least three lanes. Then Lucas could waive at the trucks when they go past his front window in the morning.

Does that mean that everybody that received those fat royalty checks would give it all back. I don't think so. I am sorry for the Lucas's, but that curve should have been addressed years ago. I agree with Notorious. The Department of Transportation should have acquired that property along time ago and redesigned that curve. Public safety should be the one number concern, not some railroad ties that should have disappeared along long time ago.

Also why don't they put no parking signs along Park Avenue. It's seems funny that there are no parking signs between 2nd & 3rd Street where the buses run between but there are signs past 3rd street to 5th street where it should make no difference. Mr Leghart should do his homework. There is a problem in this town it's called narrowed minded officials.

Look at the bigger picture. Growth is good for the economy!!!!!!! Official are always complaining about not having any money, but the oil fields have sure spread a lot around. I haven't seen anybody refuse their help. The roads in this county are better than they have ever been THANKS to the Marcus Shale boom. I've been here for over 12 years and this is my observation. The roads in the winter have been getting more attention than ever.

The Mayor of this town is a joke.He makes rules and then lets people park anywhere they want..NO PARKING IN FRONT OF HOUSE ON LAWN.. That would mean 92% of people would be getting tickets.. The wall should come down and make it easier for all traffic to get around, most of the trucks are forced over there due to oncoming traffic and have nowhere to go.. The oil industry has done nothing but good for all of us but there are a few that will never see it that way..
