For many years, the traffic pattern at the intersection of Shuswap Street and the Trans-Canada Highway was a follows: left lane turned left and straight, right lane turned right.
Now some twit decided to change things and decided they did not need to inform the public in any way, shape or form, even though that same public pays their wages.
The lanes now are as follows: left lane turns left, right lane turns right and straight.
I have witnessed many near accidents since this realignment of traffic direction has been made, indeed, just the other day I was almost hit by a woman who went straight from the left lane, giving me the finger as she narrowly missed me. I have been informed that other intersections are also going to be changed to the new system.
I am amazed that the relevant city department can arbitrarily change these lanes without any notice whatsoever. In my opinion that attitude smacks of a very cavalier, of not downright arrogance, by that department.
What I would have thought would have to have been done prior to the changes being made would be that overhead signs would have been erected and notices inserted in the local papers.
