RHVP is a recipe for disaster
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
