New round­about causes con­fu­sion

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

I saw in the news about the ICS truck go­ing on its side at the round­about on Pop­u­lar Is­land. At this round­about I al­most got rear-ended by an ICS dump truck which was trav­el­ling too fast. I stopped at the red yield sign to let a mo­torist out of Cows be­cause he was wait­ing there be­fore I got to the cir­cle.

Some­one will get se­ri­ously hurt. Traf­fic is trav­el­ling too fast through the cir­cles.

If High­way Safety were present at the new round­about by Red Rock Har­ley David­son deal­er­ship, they would be han­dling out a lot of tick­ets to driv­ers who blow by these stop signs.

I know this round­about is very con­fus­ing, a red yield sign does mean to stop if there are other ve­hi­cles around. I hope in the near fu­ture High­way Safety or RCMP will be present at this and other round­abouts to mon­i­tor the traf­fic flow.
