Drivers need to follow ‘rules of the road’

Posted: Monday, Feb 25th, 2013

Dear Editor,

I would like to respond to the letter in last week’s paper from Ron

Rasmussen. Having used the left turn lane at least twice a day for 10

years to turn left onto Rees Road, I too, have been nearly hit head on

many times. My husband and I have even experienced rude finger

gestures while using that turn lane by people trying to pass a vehicle

turning right. I would like to remind everyone that a solid yellow

line means ‘no passing.’ The center lane is a turn lane only.

I have even seen our Uinta County Sheriff vehicles using that lane to pass a

vehicle turning right onto Rees Road. Shame on you. You need to be

issuing tickets to people who cross that solid yellow line. I do

believe that is a careless driving violation.

Also, while at the Urie intersection wanting to make a right hand

turn, I've nearly been side-swiped many times by people coming up on

my right hand side between the curb and the solid white line to turn

right. People, that is not a turn lane. I think people need to review

the driving hand book more often to refresh their memory on the rules

of the road.

Please drive safely, no one wants to be responsible for injuring, or God forbid, killing someone. Thank you.

Sandra Pierce
