Cheers and Jeers, July 21

Jeers in reply to the jeers July 14 against the firefighters for stopping cars to collect donations. The collection takes place at an intersection that is a four-way stop. People are required by law to stop! It is not the firefighters making them stop. As for feeling pressured to donate. I don’t understand. No firefighter has approached my window unless I have signaled them over, otherwise I wave and drive on. They have always waved back and said have a nice day. Where is the pressure in that?
