To the editor:
“People are oblivious.” “They look at you like you have three heads.” “It’s just annoying.”
I’m hoping your reporter Rebecca Everett took the Easthampton police sergeant’s quotes out of context in the Sept. 27 story about drivers trying to cross the closed Manhan Bridge in Easthampton despite signs and barriers.
It’s true, there is a “bridge closed” sign. But another sign reads, “Northampton Street (Route 10) Businesses Are Open.”
What’s missing? A “Do Not Enter” sign. No wonder drivers are confused.
