Motorcyclists placed at risk
On Wednesday, June 28, at approximately 5:30 p.m., myself, my wife and a friend of ours were travelling eastbound on Route 1 towards the Maypoint roundabout on motorcycles. Intending to use the Upton Road, we were in the left lane as the signs show you should be. A white half-ton truck with an ICS logo on the side was in the right lane beside us. The driver of the truck proceeded through the roundabout and promptly cut over to go to the Upton Road where she turned into the ICS facility.
Seriously, does the province need to get a proof of competency for all persons working on the construction of these roundabouts?
If you can’t drive in one, should you really be building them? I did honk the horn and yell at the driver; she gave me a dirty look like I was in the wrong.
This clearly demonstrates the need for more education for drivers as well as a reminder for (motorcycle) riders to always assume you are invisible to drivers.
