A cruel joke

The Kelset Elementary School Grade 3 class “Let’s Design A Traffic Roundabout” contest was great fun but it’s time to be serious again.

There is no point on beating this to death, as all are aware of the hilarious outcome of a long and expensive project. As it has been functioning in it’s twisted manner for some time now, people are starting to become familiar with the drill.

I had the pleasure recently of instant religion when on a wet morning an SUV pilot decided he had to channel Danica Patrick on the last S curve feeding onto the McTavish roundabout. As he fishtailed towards me I felt just a little queasy. Others are also deciding that they have to “whip” through the curves and attempt to straddle the poor mesmerized tourists yearning to return to Alberta by locating the exit for B.C. Ferries. Nobody is laughing anymore.

Fix this  cruel joke now and make all of us safer.
