Letter: Gateway bump out is no cause for concern

Dear editor:

Your very frequent correspondent, Samuel Young, has surpassed himself with his comments regarding the now three-way stop signs at the corner of Queen  and Mississagua streets, ("Gateway bump out is going to cause accidents," Dec. 9).

He has clearly demonstrated that he is a few bricks short of a load, once again.

For instance, he avows that his friends observed a “high-speed sports car” having to brake suddenly when a crossing motorist was making a perfectly legal right turn.

Mr. Young blames the town for the incident. No intelligent person would concur, Mr. Editor, for the simple reason that the sports car driver clearly ignored the stop sign in front of him/her.

Presumably because a minor "bump" has been incorporated into this intersection, Mr. Young terms the intersection “now freakish.”

I have driven through this intersection many times, as no doubt much of NOTL has, since it was installed. It is now a clearly marked three-way intersection, very easy to navigate safely. Your correspondent’s comment renders him not the sharpest tool in the shed.

I shall look forward to Mr. Young’s future letters with even greater interest than in the past.
