It was at the residents’ request

M. FRYER (Todmorden News, December 8) saw fit to demonstrate his lamentable sarcasm and rudeness in his letter about the sign asking drivers parked at the roadworks lights on Rochdale Road to turn their music down while waiting to go through.

This sign was kindly put up by the company doing the work at the request of concerned local residents.

An incessant stream of loud car radios is an unnecessary intrusion into people’s lives, as any reasonable person knows. Perhaps M. Fryer does not belong to the latter category.
