Center turn lanes can be dangerous
ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) — I can’t believe we don’t see more center turn-lane accidents than we do see.
It seems there are center turn lanes in areas where there are more than a dozen entrances and exits for businesses.
I’ve been heading into a center turn late before only to come inches away from a car facing me.
Then throw into the mix the drivers who use the center turn lane as a way to merge into traffic and you’re looking at a potential three-car accident.
It’s great to have a turn lane to keep traffic moving. I just wish we didn’t have them in areas where we have so many places to turn.
