Trucker says Mayor Harris taking right steps on truck routing
Comments re article 47335 Columbia City Council report October 4 2011 meeting
By Mark Hale
Ed, I wanted to comment on the truck routing off the square. As a truck driver myself I understand the frustration involved in getting around a town especially if you don't know your way around.
I think that Mayor Harris is doing the right thing by getting the proper signage in place. I have thought all along that the signs were not clear enough for those new to the area. It's difficult enough just maneuvering a big rig around tight spaces so most drivers would rather use a bypass even if it's a mile or two more.
One thing I would like to request is that once the signs are in place that if a big truck misses the sign and comes on into town to let him go on his way. Sometimes people new to the area are watching traffic more than they are the signs and may not notice the sign directing them another way.
I would ask law enforcement to be patient with the big truck drivers and help them out if they need it instead of giving citations for coming through town. In time all those coming through town regularly will be using the bypass. Thanks for all you do.
PS: Sunday was a great day in Columbia, KY. I'm grateful for the support the community has shown Sgt. Meyer. - Mark Hale
