“It’s got directional signs, so if they just pay attention, it will be like navigating the interstate.” (Kenmore Police Chief Cliff Sether, May 18 Reporter story)
Which a significant percentage of Washington state drivers are not competent to do either. Driver training in Washington must be a joke, because I see people every day I drive who don’t understand the rules of the road, and/or aren’t paying attention to the task of driving, or are simply and obviously unqualified to drive, at least at the time they are behind the wheel. They don’t have a clue as to the concept of lane discipline — if you want to drive below the limit/safe speed, move into the #2 (slow) lane rather than coasting down the road obstructing traffic.
The U-turns are very scary. And I wish the bridge dodgers would stop driving like they are late. You all know who you are. Flooding the community with Eastside drivers is just creating chaos.
There have been more accidents since the have put in the dividers... Coincidence? Bad idea from the start... Now I’m sure they will be lowering the speed limit to 30-35 because of the careless drivers.
