Rumble strip are inconvenient, but save lives | Letter to the Editor

I was so pleased that rumble strips have been installed on Vashon Highway. As founder of the Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center, I am well aware that rumble strips save lives. And two-lane Vashon Highway is the perfect place for them. Yes, the rumble strips will be inconvenient for cyclists, less so when they get used to them.

But civil disobience against a life-saving measure? Nonsense!
