LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Recently, while driving up Seacliff after turning off Canal, some lunatic in a SUV tried to pass another car on one of the downhill blind curves. Fortunately, all three were able to stop without a collision.
The fact that we had to stop to avoid collision tells you about all you need to know about the incident.
My primary intent in relating this is to emphasize the danger associated with the very bad proposal to create an entrance to the Quarry project off Seacliff Drive. No one can account for all bad drivers. However, we can create roadways where the chance of incidents are reduced.
Allowing high-traffic entrances off a curving road with blind turns invites the chance of accidents.
My incident occurred in broad daylight. Had it occurred at nighttime, well, draw your own conclusions. Additionally, my incident caused me to ask why Seacliff Dr. is not a no-passing zone.
If this incident causes others to ponder the above issues, I encourage them to pass their opinions on to the appropriate parties.
