Qualicum Beach traffic safety

Since the question of roundabouts came up, it might also be a good idea to remind people about proper etiquette at Memorial and Fern.

Since the question of roundabouts and their use came in the Aug. 25 edition of The NEWS, it might also be a good idea to remind people about proper etiquette or the rules in regards to the stop light at the corner of Memorial and Fern.

When someone is stopped at a green light trying to make a left turn, it does not mean that a person coming up behind that car can pass that car on the right hand side.

What if another person is trying to turn left from the oncoming traffic? What if the person who is waiting to turn left is waiting for a pedestrian to cross?

Be patient. It surprises me that there has not been a serious accident at this corner yet.

Slow down people and wait a minute. No one needs to get by someone that badly.
