Drive careful

Attention drivers of the Old Island Highway: if you can’t keep your vehicle on your side, then slow down or buy a smaller vehicle.

Attention drivers who use the windy section of the Old Island Highway between Bayliss Road and Bowser: if you can’t keep your vehicle on your side of the highway when you go around a curve, then perhaps you should slow down or buy a smaller vehicle if you can’t control your extra large pickup truck.

I had five huge pickup trucks and one car come into my lane one recent morning as I took my small children to preschool in Bowser. I shouldn’t have to worry about six head-on collisions in a 10-minute trip.

This happens every time I leave the house. Please slow down and keep your vehicle on your side of the road before you cause a head-on collision that would seriously injure or kill someone.
