Letter: Agrees with Ed Darnell

Opinion expressed are from writer's viewpoint

Diana Long writes:
I totally agree with Ed Darnell on his matter. The changes made to 55 have hurt more then they have helped. When one life is lost on this road then it's going to be too late. I don't see what the need for the change in this road was all about, they have created more damage than good. This road was not over-crowded before they widened it and people passed others just fine.

I travel this road at least 5 times a week and have to make a left hand turn into a private residence while sitting in the passing/fast lane. There is hardly any room for a vehicle that decides to speed around the vehicles in front of him to get around when I'm sitting in the passing/fast lane to cross. It's a dangerous situation trying to watch your rear view mirror and the road ahead to cross all at the same time.

Whoever came up with this stupid idea needs to sit in this passing/fast lane when traffic is heavy and rethink what they have created. They have opened up an opportunity of speed and disaster. --Diana Long
