Road Project Costly and Unnecessary
I live in Vass on N.C. 690 (Lobelia Road). Recently a stretch this road was closed down for two months to supposedly straighten out a dangerous curve that was the site of many accidents. All of the residents were inconvenienced and had to use detours to get to and from our houses.
This was an expensive and time-consuming road project that was not needed. To simply solve the problem, all that needed to be done was lower the speed limit and enforce it.
Every car that goes past my house is exceeding the speed limit. Last week the road reopened, and you could not tell that anything had been done to change the “curve.” This was a total waste of taxpayer and county money.
If the police did radar on a regular basis, the town and county would make a fortune on speeding fines, probably even surpassing what was spent on this senseless construction project. It is not the curves in the road causing the accidents; it the drivers going too fast.
