Put the bridge down and leave it down

To the editor:

I'm sure that most of us will agree that the drawbridge in Matlacha is a complete waste. Let the boats go around - why hold up hundreds of cars for the sake of a couple of boats that go through. The only downside would be putting the bridge operator out of a job. But if rumor is correct, Burnt Store Road will be a toll road when it's finished so there might be a job for him there. But the main thing is, an ambulance that has a critical case in it, and it gets down to the bridge, and if it's up in the air doing a test on it, or any emergency vehicle, fire truck, etc. Make a long story short, put the bridge down and leave it down.
