Why are drunks a higher priority than businesses?
I REFER to your article "Drinkers' safety paramount, say police over road closure" (Derby Telegraph, February 26).
I refrain from saying what I really think of the police and council's comments regarding the closure of the Strand.
But putting much-needed business at financial risk to protect a few idiots who choose to drink too much beggars belief. These people should be locked up for the night, somewhere they can do no harm.
If safety on the corner of the Strand and Wardwick is a genuine concern, then improvements to the road layout should be made for the benefit of law-abiding citizens during the day.
