I understand your frustration with living in Northeast PA, I do…I get it. In the past few years our area's drug problem has gone from bad to worse. Holding up a sign isn't doing much of anything to fix the problem though. I know you have a number posted on there for anonymous tips, but you have the same functionality of a billboard. Why not just post it to a billboard already and be done with it? Why not post it in phone books, newspapers, websites and other relevant forms of media. One man holding one sign in various places doesn't really seem like it covers a broad enough audience, since you cannot be in multiple places. Drugs aren't just on one particular street corner or neighborhood….they are everywhere.
Another thing that bothers me about you is you blatently try to distract drivers by waving around your sign toward them as for them to get them to beep your horn at you or acknowledge your presence. As I mentioned earlier, I appreciate your presence, but if you are not careful you are going to cause an accident one of these days. I have noticed many people trying to multitask driving along with various other things (putting on makeup, talking on cell phones, etc) and it doesn't work. They do not pay attention to the road and end up putting other people as well as themselves at risk.
It just irritates me to come home everyday and have you on my street as if I lived on the only bad street on the planet that has a drug problem. I know people do drugs on my street, as well as every other street in the USA. I don't need to be slapped in the face with it every day of my life.
Please just rent a billboard and stop picketing on my street. That is all I ask.
