Roundabout great idea for ‘insane intersection’ in Courtenay

Dear Editor:

Finally, someone "in power" has suggested a roundabout for at least one of the insane intersections of Courtenay.

Dear Editor:

Finally, someone “in power” has seen the light and suggested a roundabout for at least one of the insane intersections of Courtenay — Lerwick and Ryan.

I wrote a letter to the paper years ago suggesting also Ryan and the Island Highway, and Cliffe and 17th Street need roundabouts not only for safety, but even just to keep the traffic moving smoothly.

What I find ridiculous is the suggestion of not enough land. Really?!

Look at the size of the lot that the hospital is supposed to fit on!

Where there is a will, there is a way.

Cameras will only take photos of accidents as they happen; roundabouts will prevent them. If it’s possible in Europe, where space is indeed limited, it must be possible here!

Sabine Schill,

Cumberland
