LETTER: More patience, less mouth needed when directing traffic

To the Editor:

I came upon an accident on Wednesday at the intersection of Burr Street and Havens Avenue in late afternoon. Traffic was slow, but people were patient.

Some man was directing traffic, and as I got to the front of the line, he motioned for me to go. I proceeded slowly, and he hollered, "Are you sleeping? Get moving."

Such a stupid thing to say.

Does he think I'm going to go fast when there is a person lying in the middle of Havens, and people are around him?

The authorities hadn't gotten there yet, so he acted like a big shot. He needed to have more patience and less mouth.
