Dan­ger­ous left

The Prince George Citizen - - FRONT PAGE -

If you’re driv­ing north on Ospika and you’re turn­ing left on the new lights on Ferry, you pull into the left turn­ing lane,there is a prob­lem. If there are ve­hi­cles in the op­pos­ing left turn lane, you can­not see the on­com­ing traf­fic be­cause your line of site is com­pletely cut off, which makes you creep out into the on­com­ing lane to see any ve­hi­cles.

That very dan­ger­ous sit­u­a­tion is go­ing to lead to a very bad ac­ci­dent at those lights and with the cars speed­ing up that on­com­ing hill, it’s go­ing to be bad.

The city needs to put a timed left turn sig­nal for both left turn lanes or what hap­pened at the bot­tom of Pe­den Hill is go­ing too hap­pen again. cerned for ev­ery driver that has to use that left turn­ing lane. The lights are nice for traf­fic go­ing east or west through Ospika but it’s not work­ing for traf­fic for the left turn lanes. Can’t even imag­ine come win­ter time when the snow is pilled up at those lights and there will be to­tal lack of vi­sion for any­one. Ken Fraser Prince Ge­orge
