A hypothetical: How Dr. Roger, Ralph Roy would acknowledge driving sins

Comparative crime, comparative confessions

Roger D Smith DMD writes to Junior:
Dear Jr: I think it is boring to sit at the light and not turn, but I don't because I would be running a red light. Since you have already pled guilty to this offense then I would ask, "How many times have you as a public servant turned yourself in to the local authorities?"

You know in your heart if Ralph and I had committed this offense, we would be waiting for the proper authorities the very next morning!

Especially, if someone had seen us. - Roger D Smith DMD

Jon Halsey: Against government set asides for minorities

Comments re article 57500 State implements new procurement process for minority vendors

By Jon Halsey
Personal opinion

I thought Racial Discrimination was against the law in this county. Silly me.

I think it is an admirable goal to reach out to Small Businesses but to give preference based on Race is as abominable now as it was 60 years ago.

Ed Pipalski poses questions on crosswalks

Ed Pipalski writes:
The stop lines are placed on the roadway prior to the pedestrian cross walk lane so vehicles do not obstruct or strike pedestrians who actually use the crosswalks and obey traffic laws like they are required to in most municipalities, ie. jay-walking. The real question though is, if one fails to stop, completely behind the line or stop sign if there is no line, did one run the sign and be subject to a traffic citation? - Ed Pipalski

Dale Hollow ranked No. 7 best golf course in Kentucky

Rating by Golf Digest for 2013-14, puts Burkesville, Cumberland County, course among Commonwealth's Best

Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park, 6371 State Park Road, Burkesville, KY had the No. 7 ranked course in the state of Kentucky, for 2013-14, according to Gold Digest Magazine. The magazine ranked another state park course, Eagle Ridge at Yatesville Lake State Park, Louisa, KY, as No. 10.

Dale Hollow is the home course for Cumberland County High School, Burkesville, KY, and is frequently used as a multi-team meet venue for many area golf teams.

"This is recognition of the excellent golf we offer our customers and the great staff we have at our courses," Parks Commissioner Elaine Walker said. "We have many excellent courses, and it's gratifying to see two of them on this list."

Golf Digest ranked courses on criteria such as course design, aesthetics, and scoring difficulty.

Question: Should white stop lines be placed farther back?

Shannon writes to Big Al Owens:
Big Al Owens - I totally agree. White lines instructing you where to stop at an intersection are there for a reason, but too many people pull through those lines - thinking they can get where they are going a couple feet, inches or seconds quicker. When I was almost taken out by the trailer last week, I backed up almost two car lengths to give the truck room. His trailer was 1/4 of the way into the lane where my car was sitting.

Maybe the white lines need backed up a bit to allow more room - as there was clearly not enough. My business ships upwards of 100 loads of material per month all by semi truck. We know the value of trucks to our economy and appreciate our drivers. It's just hard to put those things in tiny spaces - even if everyone is obeying the traffic laws, signs and stripes. - Shannon

Dave Burton suggests that uncommon courtesy may be answer

'Given 'em some room' - Small vehicle drivers can go beyond the letter of the law, and watch for ways to make the trucker's job a bit easier - like staying an extra car length or so behind the white stop line when the trucker's signal is indicating a turn. Come to think of it, Dave's idea with its uncommon courtesy makes a lot of sense - for instance, in places like the intersection of Lowe's Lane and Jamestown Street and Reed Street, where not blocking the intersection should be a courtesy by law, but isn't. - CM

Dave Burton writes:
I'm not a Big-Rig driver, but I know for a fact they go through a lot more driver training than smaller vehicle drivers do. Truck drivers have a very large responsibility when out on the road with their rigs to themselves, the company they work for, and to the rest of us in cars and pick-ups.

As someone else commented, they are under enough stress already. Let's all be respectful of that and remember to "Give 'em some room".

Yes, we have just as much right to be on the road as they do, but would it hurt to give them a little extra space at intersections? Sometimes they have to pull up to the far right at an intersection to safely make a left turn. Watch for their turn signal as you begin to pull up beside them - if the left indicator is blinking, please stay back a way from the white line about a car link or so to give them the space they need to make that turn.

I'm sure they would be extremely grateful and you have just done your part to minimize a chance of an accident occurring. - Dave Burton

CDL instructor outlines procedure for 90 degree turns

Oncoming traffic must clear before wide swing is made

Joe Hare writes:
Nice comment by Al. As an instructor at a CDL school we teach every day that the drivers, either the semi or the car must stop behind the white line to allow turning traffic room to make that turn.

In regards to trucks making a 90 degree right turn, it is illegal for a semi to swing left into another lane before a right turn, due to someone trying to turn inside of them and then getting hit. The legal turn is to wait until oncoming traffic has cleared and swing wide on the street they are turning into.

Semi drivers are like everybody - there are good drivers and not so good, but in the State of Kentucky there is extensive schooling and testing, by the State, before you can obtain a Class A CDL. Safety is the number one priority in this training. - Joe Hare

Sees no need not to turn left when no one in sight

Willie M Feese Jr writes:
Hey Ed,

I'M GUILTY!! I, at times find it hard to sit in the left lane at the intersection of E. Hwy 80 and Hwy 55 waiting for a full cycle when nothing is coming in sight. I don't recall ever seeing a similar situation anywhere I have ever been where there is a green light and a red light burning at the same time. I suppose anyone wanting to turn into the Columbia Housing Authority could go on through the green light and turn, otherwise I see no need for this double light. We see green lights everywhere we travel that allow motorists to turn left when nothing is approaching from the opposite direction. What makes this intersection any different from those. So until such time that a ticket is written or a sign posted I will continue to turn left on red when no one is in sight in the approaching lane. Thanks. - Willie M Feese Jr

Big Al Owens: It's important to stop behind painted stop line

Big Al Owens writes:
I have noticed in my years of driving a Big Rig that most people do not stop behind the painted stop line at many intersections. The stop lines are there for a reason and usually they are there so that Big Rigs can make their turns safely. When cars are half past the stop line or a full car length past the stop line, this makes it difficult for truckers, also people either do not pay attention or are distracted by other sources to see what is going on around them. - -Big Al Owens

Left turn against red light creating hazards at intersection

About intersection of Jamestown Street/Russell Road

Roger D Smith DMD writes:
This intersection has another problem. Folks seem to not realize that the red light in the turning lane from the Square does not mean STOP and turn across to E.80 at will. I have seen several near accidents by vehicles turning against the light into the path of others heading toward town.

There either needs to be a no turn on red sign at the light or place one of our policemen to observe and pass out some tickets. There will be an accident at this intersection if something isn\'t done. --Roger D Smith DMD
