Opinions are personal viewpoint of the writer
I agree with Joyce that in spite of the road design; driver irresponsibility and inattentiveness are the catalysts to catastrophe on North 55.
However, I also agree with Maury in her synopsis of passing lane anomaly as the foundational issue at play.
In conclusion and for our consideration, short attention spans, speeding on arrow straight roadways, distracted drivers and blurred, rapidly changing lines of demarcation separating rural and urban roadways are real cultural and societal phenomenon which must be addressed on a continuing basis.
It is time for our community to realize that North 55 to, at the very least, Pyles Concrete is an urban area which demands that the present, middle passing lane be changed to a turning lane for its entire length. This will cost almost nothing with only signage and highway marking changes required and will actually facilitate a smoother and for sure, a safer flow of traffic. I might add that a 45 mile per hour speed limit from Russell Creek bridge at NAPA to Trinity Church might very well prove to be a good idea.
