I must say I agree with your recent editorial on Ocean City rentals ( " Ocean City 's rental rage," Aug. 18). This is a slippery slope the town is going down. Ocean City is built on tourism dollars, and it has nothing to gain and much to lose by biting the proverbial hand that feeds it. The real problem here is that the tone of Ocean City is changing and there seems little motivation to enforce the laws. That would be a good start to solving problems all over Ocean City . I've been coming to Ocean City for over 50 years.

Among all the games of chance played by Ocean City vacationers this summer, one is proving to be a nightmare for officials who can't seem to stop it. Pedestrians - many of them jaywalking - are being struck with alarming regularity. So far this year, there have been 22 vehicle-pedestrian accidents, two of them fatal. Last year there were 19 accidents with no fatalities, and in 2010, there were 29, with one fatality. Almost all of the accidents occurred on Ocean City 's Main Street, Coastal Highway, a nine-mile ribbon of blacktop eight lanes wide.
