In a recent “My Turn,” Lana Mook, the mayor of El Mirage, said El Mirage is no longer a place on the way to someplace else. The problem is, drivers will avoid El Mirage when possible because they have become the speed capital of Arizona. They set speed limits artificially low to trap drivers with excessive fines to fund their development for new places to shop and dine, but the people won’t come. Recently, a judge ruled that their speeding fines were excessive and ordered them to make refunds. Does this sound like a friendly city you would visit and dine? If Lana Mook wants to improve the image of her city, she needs to stop this despicable income generator on the backs of the people she hopes will visit her businesses.
