Doom Awaits Those Who Ignore Plain Instructions
By Mike Watson
"Doom Awaits Those Who Ignore Plain Instructions" -- This is exactly the thought that ran through my head Wednesday afternoon as I turned up West Frazier Street from Burkesville Street.
Why? Well, for the third time in as many weeks I met someone intending to exit W. Frazier onto Burkesville. This is a one-way from the top of the street down to Burkesville Street. I have seen it many times over the years and there have been accidents at the intersection with Burkesville Street.
There is a stop sign and a clearly marked "One Way Do Not Enter" sign on the same pole--not obscured in the least.
Yesterday, a vehicle driven by a youngish male was heading toward Burkesville Street as I started up W. Frazier. He stopped just before the the sign to wait for me to come up, and pass him. He HAD TO SEE THE SIGN for he was parked just in front of it.
After I drove by, checking my mirror, he proceeded to exit just as he intended.
There MUST be a way to stop this blatant breaking of the law! There must be a way to prevent further accidents and possible loss of life. It's not that I'm concerned about the law-breaking driver, but those coming from either direction on Burkesville Street could be caught by surprise and be injured or worse.
A nice ticket to the perpetrator may slow this practice down; regular ticketing might even stem the years-long tide.
