Seriously though, I would have no issue with that. It's impossible to see anything when you come out at Kirby with cars parked everywhere at the businesses.

Businesses have been around that intersection for decades, why the problem now, drivers getting more stupid?

BTW, Councilwoman Farrell wants another one added on Shirley Street and St. Jean Street (road to Extendicare and Renaissance High School). That would be cool to watch functioning, Shirley being 4 lanes and whatnot.

Drivers aren't more stupid. Drivers are just trying to drive faster and more careless with no regards to anyone but themselves, trying to save them 10 seconds on a trip.

The Shirley Street one is just funny, IMO.

There seems to be more parked cars and less visibility compared to before. I'm all for having it at that intersection.

Third and Birch

Park and Norman

Airport Road and Lonergan

100% with your first one. Kind of 75 to 80% with the other two.

Then again, why do I care. I have no plans to be up there anytime soon. [think

The vehicles turning left off of Lonergan on to Airport really annoy me. The road isn't wide enough for right turners to advance and turn so you have to wait a very long time for each vehicle that is turning left.

I do use Riverpark. It's too isn't wide enough but is usually a better place to turn both left and right.

Wide enough? Is your family car a tractor trailer?

How would two cars be side by side in that photo....facing the same direction....legally?

It's even more narrow than I ever remembered.

Psst.... Loco..... tell him you drive a Hummer. Or a Range Rover. [whistle

Drive on the unpaved shoulder all you want, if there is an issue, just tell the authorities you know Roger Rheault and you should get a free pass.
