|Quick, where's the turn lane? Where the hell are any of the lanes?|
Yep no lane markings. No turn lane arrows, no lane dividers- the only lane assignments are small plastic tabs set down to mark the lane boundaries. I guess that is what they are there for. You can't tell and its not like the city or construction company is going out of the way to place signs, markers or even a flagmen to help drivers steer their way way through this blight. You are on your own if you are stupid enough to try and tread the roadway.
|Nice job of removing the lane marking, wouldn't want to make it easy for drivers.|
I returned to the office and angrily called the city to complain. Why were there no lane markings in the intersection I asked? the answer came back they were doing road work and paving. No shit- really? I would have never guessed. then I was told it was the contractor who must have forgot to replace the road marking which was supposed to be done at the end of the day. I drove back at 5:00 pm and not a soul around. I took the pictures showing the unmarked pavement and headed out to another assignment.
|It's not like we need to know which lane we are supposed to be in.|
Driving to work today I saw a series of small left turn arrows placed in the road marking the intersections. It seems my venting fell on someone's ear as they marked it for drivers this morning. It is sad that it took an angry call for the city to make sure the right thing happened. I am just glad no one had to get hurt first for it to happen.
