In­ter­sec­tion head-scratcher

The Expositor (Brantford) - - OPINION -

Fur­ther to the topic of ridicu­lous road mark­ings, I of­fer the in­ter­sec­tion of Pow­er­line Road and Park Road North. Most ma­jor in­ter­sec­tions in Brant­ford have left turn lanes to en­able through traf­fic to keep flow­ing. Park Road North, go­ing north and south, has left turn lanes. But Pow­er­line has a right turn lane. Why? All it does is de­lay traf­fic go­ing east and west along Pow­er­line. Ve­hi­cles get stuck be­hind left-turn­ing cars, caus­ing a need­less lineup of those want­ing to drive through. Some­times, mo­torists must sit through two traf­fic light cy­cles.

It would please many if this sit­u­a­tion is rec­ti­fied. Don’t wait un­til there is an ac­ci­dent be­fore you do some­thing.

D. Fer­rier Brant­ford
