LETTER: Reader loves living in C-K, dislikes the loud vehicles


Editor: We moved from Toronto to Chatham-Kent in early September. I found the Remembrance photos of war vets that lined King Street to be very moving.

The farm fields with their giant wind turbines are functional and picturesque.

But (and you knew this was coming) it seems whoever sells those obnoxiously loud mufflers is making a fortune. I appreciate being young and enjoying my first car, but mufflers this loud only feed the self-gratification of the driver to the great annoyance of everyone else.

I’ve also noticed a large percentage of drivers appear to be in the Indy 500 except…sorry…the skill is lacking. Tailgating, speeding and weaving in and out of traffic are common sports enjoyed by adolescent males and females alike.

So I stick to the slow lane, watch them and wonder who the heck taught them to drive, and how long it will be before they smash up those nice new pickups and cars.

  1. I have to admit that I agree with you 100%. It’s sad to see the streets of C-K becoming more of an unruly playground every year.
