Driv­ers’ re­spon­si­bil­ity

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

I HAVE been try­ing to work out why there is a prob­lem with the Shute Har­bour and Gre­go­ryCan­non Val­ley roads junc­tion.

Why is it a “notorious junc­tion”?

The ap­proach roads are well marked, well sur­faced, straight and flat.

The sight lines are as good, if not bet­ter, than any other junc­tion in the area. So what’s the prob­lem? Surely the prob­lem must lie with some of the driv­ers who use the junc­tion.

The bu­reau­cratic so­lu­tions sug­gested by some of your read­ers.

Speed lim­its, round­abouts, traf­fic lights etc. are a waste of our scarce money.

The ac­ci­dents are caused by the driver/s so the an­swer is sim­ple.

If a driver can­not han­dle the junc­tion, safely and con­fi­dently, they shouldn’t be driv­ing. Ge­off Smith Can­non­vale
