RHVP is a recipe for disas­ter

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: An­other rea­son for ac­ci­dents on the park­way (July 26)

In ad­di­tion to Bill Watts’ cor­rect and ex­act ob­ser­va­tion is the fact that, go­ing up the RHVP at the top of the hill, there are three lanes at the Mud St. merge en­trance. In the right lane there are usu­ally one or two 50,000 pound laden trucks crawl­ing to get up the hill with four way flash­ers on and try­ing to get up to speed to get in the mid­dle lane as that lane ends af­ter the Dart­nall exit.

In the mid­dle lane there are ve­hi­cles try­ing to get off right to the Dart­nall exit. At the same time ve­hi­cles are try­ing to get up to speed and en­ter­ing the third lane from the Mud St. merge and try­ing to get in the mid­dle lane to travel west on the Linc and then two lanes go down a small val­ley with cars merg­ing in from the Dart­nall merge en­trance to go west.

At this point there are trucks and cars with left, right and four way flash­ers go­ing and speed­ing up as well as slow­ing down.

This is recipe for disas­ter. Tom Palmer, Stoney Creek
