Couple doesn’t see officers writing traffic citations | Letter

My husband and I live in unincorporated King County. We drive to or through downtown Redmond four or five times a week. I cannot tell you the last time I saw a Redmond police officer pull a car or truck over for a traffic violation. I see people speeding, running red lights and distracted drivers — just to name a few. Twice, I have seen cars race to see how fast they can go when Redmond puts the sign up that shows drivers’ speeds on Union Hill Road across from the King County shops. One time, it read 70-plus mph.

I appreciate that King County, Kirkland and Bellevue troopers and officers pull drivers over for infractions. Why don’t Redmond officers? Are they afraid to offend drivers or are we the only people who think there is a problem?
