LETTERS TO THE EDITOR - Traffic troubles off Pine Street


Westbound on Pine Street I carefully approached the circle with no cars in sight, when a car from the ShopKo exit almost hit me.

Having two entrances so close together is a recipe for disaster.

The heavier traffic on the Pine Street artery should have priority over the less used ShopKo exit, that does not even have a yield sign!

Some cars from Myra Road speed around the circle as though it is a game, so a slow sign may help them to slow them down.

The circle is to promote a safe traffic flow. I thought Myra Road upgrade was to get trucks off Ninth Avenue, but they avoid it because circles are not for big rigs.
