Stickle Road

Resident critical of the Ministry of Transportation's plans for Highway 97

Now I’ve heard the stupidest excuse for not putting a light at the Stickle Road intersection.

Perhaps whoever said that motorists don’t expect signals on high-speed highways should take a  drive into  Kamloops from the east.

The Trans-Canada has a higher speed limit than Highway 97 and there doesn’t seem to have been an inordinate number of rear-end collisions there.

The solution is simple, an advance warning with adequate signing and a speed limit reduction starting at the weigh scale. It’s a straight road there should be no surprises.
