I would like to offer a tip of my hat to the officers of the Lake Wales Police Department, who take their jobs protecting the public very seriously.
My experience on two occasions that I have witnessed two drivers reckless enough to warrant a call to 911 both brought quick results.
Today involved a crazy person in I tiny car racing at very high speed on Hunt Brothers Road, and then running a stop sign.
My call to the emergency operator resulted in not one, but two officers calling me back for details as they pursued the matter.
On a previous occasion on US 27, a driver swerving through traffic southbound from Cypress Gardens Boulevard was greeted by the Lake Wales PD as he sped past Florida's Natural.
After encountering the virtually-unpatrolled mayhem of I-4, it's good to know that our finest are working to keep our own streets safe.
