Suggests change to Burkesville Street entrance
By Ralph Roy Waggener
Personal opinion of the editor of It's Just for Smile News
On the subject of the Public Square, the two lanes coming in on Burksville Street: If the state would let a curved white line continue on to the Square a short distance to help drivers understand when they are in the right position to not run in to the other lane, if would help.
Both lanes need to turn to the right even if going around the Square or proceeding to Jamestown Street.
At least a study should be done to determine if this would help. One morning last week there was no traffic so I thought I see how fast I could leave Burksville street going around the Square and got up to 18 miles per hour with my van leaning a lot.
Speed may not be the biggest problem. Post signs possibly, but if drivers are distracted with other things such as cellphones or even other things on the Square.
It seems most of the problems are from cell phones distracting drivers who have one track minds.
Just a opinion from Ralph Roy Waggener, don't mean to be meddling in goverment business. - Ralph Roy Waggener
