TRAFFIC: Watch 4th and Best

Kudos to Ralph Pederson, a former police officer, for writing to address an important traffic problem in Coeur díAlene.

Itís pretty telling when a respectful driver feels the need to say a quick prayer when approaching the intersection of Fourth Street and Best Avenue.
