I wish to commend Hank Ozaki’s letter to the editor Wednesday (“A safety suggestion for bus stops”) about using bollards to protect people.

I drive along Village Center Circle in Summerlin. First I pass a bench in an area marked as a bus stop. It is about three feet back from the curb. One hundred feet further along I pass an electric utility box, also about three feet back from the curb.

The utility box is protected by several bright yellow bollards. The bench at the bus stop is not. This seems to reflect a misplaced priority as well as a missed opportunity to protect lives and property.
