It was the 10th collision there this year, including one involving a state trooper a day before the double fatality.The State Highway Administration deserves credit for reacting quickly.

It's no mystery that the crossroads of Routes 1 and 24 in Bel Air is a traffic tangle, so it's perfectly reasonable that the Bel Air town government would want to spend at least a portion of an unexpected $200,000 highway windfall on a study of the intersection. When it comes down to doing the study, though, figuring out what's wrong isn't really the issue. Figuring out how to disperse traffic at busy times of day is going to be the part that, if someone can figure out, is worth spending a fair amount of money on. There's no reason, however, to expect a good resolution to the difficult problem at hand.

As taken from the pages of The Aegis dated Thursday, May 2, 1963: Bel Air's First Clean-Up Day began this week as city officials are fully cooperating in the effort to make Bel Air one of the nation's most progressive communities. More than 15 organizations put their membership behind the clean-up campaign. Mayor Buchal hoped that Bel Air would win a prize in the national contest. The highlight of the 10-day Bel Air Clean-Up, Fix-Up, Paint-Up campaign was a parade through Main Street.

It is not surprising that people such as Prince George's County Executive Rushern L. Baker III are calling again for an increase in the gas tax ("Calls for new road and transit funding," Dec. 13). Look around at all the other transportation projects that no one except the politicians wanted: the Intercounty Connector (billions of dollars), the Interstate 95 express toll lanes (billions more), the construction at I-95 and Route 24 (millions on top of that). It goes on and on. The politicians seem to think taxpayers are an endless supply of funds, yet if you look at what they are doing at White Marsh Boulevard and have done at Route 24, they've put in more traffic signals which will cause us to waste more gas. It is ridiculous, and I am hoping the taxpayers recognize the politicians seem to no longer have the taxpayers' best interests in mind but some other interests.
