I haven’t written a letter for many years, but after another experience at the Sourdough Rendezvous parade I have to express my feelings (mostly anger and frustration) about the stupid people who drive the speed limit and then some down Second Avenue.

These dolts, with every kind of knowledge the Rendezvous Society can give them, still think they have every right to disrupt the parade and not give the children (who line the parade route) a chance to be a part of this perennial activity.

Our parade isn’t going to tie up your day for an hour or two, so why is it so hard not to notice flashing city/police lights and get off the thoroughfare before people like me have to stand in the middle of the street just to get your attention?

I can’t believe that people can be so stunned as to not know what is going on and get off the street for just a few minutes. The stalwarts that participate in the parade deserve more respect than you, as drivers, give them.

I certainly hope the people who recognize themselves take a second sober look at their driving habits and treat Second Avenue a little more humbly, not just at Rendezvous but all year.

It was hoped that the traffic light at Black Street would deter your heavy foot between the lights at Ogilvie and Main Street, but such is not the case.
