FIFE: I’ve taken my business elsewhere

Re: “Traffic cams discourage business” (letter, 3-16).

Someone else feels the same way I do. I used to give Fife plenty of business. I had my boat moored at Hylebos Marina for years and would stop at the Poodle Dog for breakfast three or four times week. I shopped at Costco weekly, got boat supplies at West Marine and gambled at the Emerald Queen.

Alas, no more. I moved boat to Tacoma, have breakfast at Alfred’s, buy my boat supplies online and gamble at the Muckleshoot casino – all for a $124 ticket for making a free right-hand turn and stopping beyond the white line. The camera showed my car’s front tire 6 inches past the line.
