Stop turning US 278 into a no-turn speedway

info@islandpacket.comApril 24, 2013 

Why don't all of you people complaining about people driving in the left lane on U.S. 278 admit that the real reason you want that lane clear is so that you can continue to break the law by driving well over the speed limit? Your driving causes accidents and endangers other drivers when you zip in and out of traffic every few seconds and ride other driver's back bumpers.

The police should be arresting all of you aggressive lawbreakers, not the left-lane drivers. U.S. 278 is a service road, not an interstate highway. There are shopping centers, housing developments, doctors, businesses, eating establishments, etc., off the left lanes. How are people supposed to get there if not turn from the left lane? Slow down and lighten up.
