Traffic light concerns
Thursday, September 30, 2010 - 12:16 pm

Since the traffic light at the intersection of Maple and Route 11 (Sandstone Drive) in Potsdam was changed to allow right-hand turns from the left-hand lane as well as the right-hand lane when heading toward Rt. 11, I have near-collisions at least twice daily as I commute to and from work. The new dotted lines indicating the lanes are supposed to be followed throughout the intersection, not crossed mid-stream! When turning right from the left lane, I have been cut off more times than I can count by fools who start in the right-lane but then cross into the center during the turn without looking. Are all these people ignorant of traffic laws, or just rude, inconsiderate and self-important? Learn to drive in a law-abiding and considerate manner!
