After ticket for seatbelt, visitors will avoid Paducah

By CRYSTAL MITTELHAUSER Sedalia, Mo.

EDITOR:

On April 15, we visited your very lovely city. We stayed at the Fairfield Inn, had a lovely dinner at one of the local restaurants, and filled our auto with gasoline. We basically spent a few hundred dollars in Paducah.

After dinner we took a slow drive through the city admiring it and the beautiful painting and descriptions by the riverfront. When getting back into the auto my husband failed to fasten his seatbelt. We were driving slowly looking at the sights. About one block from the hotel a police officer pulled us over due to the seatbelt violation.

Was my husband wrong? Of course he was. Did he deserve a ticket? I suspect a warning would have done just as much good.

We are older now and take more time driving back and forth between Florida and Missouri. We thought Paducah would be a very nice place for our stopover two to three times a year. Due to this $25 ticket and the police officer's decision, we will now go a little farther each direction to avoid Paducah. You probably will not miss the money we would have spent in your lovely town, but the $25 the city earned from this ticket hardly seems worth it to me; nor so to our state police son, when we asked him.
