Letters to the Editor
I heartily disagree with Kent Fletcher (The Herald-Sun, June 7). He would like to see traffic checkpoints reinstated in Durham, and gives the example of a checkpoint last weekend in Johnston County that found 40 people driving without a valid license. He's concerned about road safety, and has a point. The problem is that our undocumented neighbors, who work harder than most everyone else, who contribute enormously to our economy and pay taxes without hope of benefits – like Social Security – that the rest of us take for granted, are not allowed to take driving tests or buy car insurance.
