Weird and wonderful responses

ADRIAN Bray's letter (August 22) about inconsiderate drivers really sparked some weird and wonderful responses.

I thought the two lanes into town were always meant to merge after 11.

ADRIAN Bray's letter (August 22) about inconsiderate drivers really sparked some weird and wonderful responses.

I thought the two lanes into town were always meant to merge after 11.30am, thus preventing a huge build up of traffic going back to Oulton Broad.

Diverting traffic from London Road South and along to Mill Road will do nothing to ease the situation.

A slip road, with hindsight, from Asda along to the traffic lights at Riverside Road, would have made more sense. However, the only solution I can see now is further lights at Asda car park exit.

The "Do not Enter" yellow boxes, which were promised at the end of the road building, have not materialised not least at the entrance to the rear of Pier Terrace.

When I leave my office at Atlas Taxis I have to negotiate the traffic light at the rear of our premises where I have five seconds to leave the junction.

In that time I have to hope my route is not curtailed by traffic coming along Belvedere Road blocking my exit and that I'm not about to collide with cyclists riding on the pavement coming from the bridge.

Also I have seen drivers crossing the double white lines to get to Jewsons, Oulton Forge, Capelli's on one side and businesses on the quay on the other side (so travelling in either direction) even when its not busy.

These people cause others to queue whilst committing, what I believe, has always been a three-points on the licence offence.
