Life and limb

  • Thursday, June 27, 2013

Dear Editor
I missed getting killed or injured seriously at the three way stop on Carolina and Marion Street.  I had stopped at the stop sign on Marion Street.  When it was time for me to go, I made a left turn onto Carolina.  A car going east on Carolina came barreling toward me.  We both took evasive action.  Thankfully, I survived as it was a narrow miss.
I had noticed on two days prior to this event, that a trees limb and leaves were obstructing the stop sign on Carolina going east.  Not only that, but it's hard to see the stop sign anyway.  There is other vegetation obstructing the view before you get to the stop sign.  Add to that the fact that the sign is dirty or dull, and you have a catastrophe waiting to happen.
I think a blinking warning light should be installed on Carolina before you get to the stop sign.
I don't know who is responsible for taking action, but I would like for someone to take action soon.
Until something is done, I will not approach Carolina from Marion Street.  I'm too afraid.
