A letterbox with the inscription Letter to the editor

 I am grateful the Fauquier Times paper still exists to help deliver important stories to our community like the U.S. 17 speeding calming through Senate Bills 556 and 557 by Sen. Jill Vogel. They passed [out of committee] on Jan. 23 at Richmond General Assembly.  

I received much more support from citizens who read the article published on Jan. 8that helped these bills to pass through signatures of support and email writing to the senators.    

While social media also greatly helped, the printed paper is a source that still reaches many, and has a more trustworthy feeling to it, in my opinion.

Why are only the rich people in northern Fauquier getting help with a huge problem? Travel down 29 and see what speeders are doing. If you aren't going at least 80mph in the slow lane of I-66 you are about run off the road. I agree that speeding is a problem, but 17 north of Warrenton should not be the only road under focus.
