Biden site visitors is not going to be skipped Wilmington 311 procedure raises queries

Biden site visitors jams would not be missed

I’m a Northern New Castle County resident who joyfully appears forward to our beloved Joe Biden getting about the reins in Washington. 

Nonetheless, my exhilaration is not just for the same reason as that of most Delawareans. I am annoyed at staying caught in road blocks, going on just about every other day or so, since Biden’s 20-additionally automobile entourage has to travel non-cease at 50 mph to get him to downtown or the riverfront for his speaking engagements, and of study course the return journey again house.  Pretty much each individual other day 1 can see two or a few State Police automobiles just “hanging out” at every single and each just one of the intersections alongside Barley Mill Highway, Kennett Pike,  Powder Mill Highway, SR 141, Harmony Pike, and many others. ready for the phrase to halt traffic for the speeding “train” of law enforcement, politicians, personnel and push personnel.

I have viewed the parade fly by intersections with sirens screeching at what appears  to be unsafe speeds, and your newspaper has noted at least 5 traffic accidents have transpired. The waste of taxpayer revenue to assistance the law enforcement existence is a different load.

President-elect Joe Biden pauses to smile as listens to media questions at The Queen theater on Tuesday, Nov. 10, 2020, in Wilmington.

Mr. President-elect, we desire you very well in D.C. Godspeed, but properly!
