Seattle Times letters to the editor

Foot ferries

Still a viable option

Just a reminder that foot ferries are part of a regional multimodal approach to reducing traffic congestion [“Can we tax Peter, pay Paul?,” Times, Danny Westneat columnist, Oct. 22]. If those foot ferries are carrying 300 passengers, that likely means that there are 250 to 300 fewer cars on area roads.

It’s hard to weigh the value of reducing traffic congestion against the value provided by the sheriff’s department, but the goal is a worthy one, not just a tourist froufrou.

— Andrea Avni, Vashon Island
