Former Knightdale Mayor Billy Wilder ought to think about returning to town government.
His idea to make Knightdale’s main thoroughfare an easier byway to navigate is just the kind of common sense we look for from government.
Wilder, speaking before the council during public comment recently, asked the council to endorse the idea of restricting truck traffic on Knightdale Boulevard to just those trucks that need to go somewhere on that stretch of road.
Large trucks passing through Knightdale, have a high-speed, limited access highway readily available to get them on their way and using that road would make Knightdale Boulevard a much safer route.
We hope North Carolina’s DOT will see the wisdom in that idea and make it happen.
