North Highway 55: You can't combine passing/turning lane

There have been numerous accidents on this stretch of road. Now, someone's child & grandchild has paid the price for someone's engineering mistakes. Let's keep this child in our prayers. - JAMES ROBERTS

Personal commentary

I don't claim to be a very smart person. It doesn't take an Einstein to know that you cannot combine a turning lane & passing lane together. Before this road was finished I told my family that it wasn't going to work. I've had my own experience trying to turn into Betty's OK country cooking & someone trying to pass at the same time. There have been numerous accidents on this stretch of road. Now, someone's child & grandchild has paid the price for someone's engineering mistakes. Let's keep this child in our prayers. Who ever came up with this brilliant passing lane fiasco should be fired & held accountable! Thanks, - James Roberts.
