Letters: Connector dangerous

Wadams Way may be a hazard to drivers along Otter Point Road

A dangerous condition now exists at the intersection of Townsend Road and the newly constructed road, Wadams Way.

A driver of a vehicle approaching Wadams Way along Townsend Road from the south has his/her vision restricted of approaching pedestrians/traffic from the east on Wadams Way.

Prior to the paving of the trail along Wadams Way the owners of private residential lot number 2127 (on the town pdf map) piled up large boulders parallel with the new paved trail on the south side of Wadams Way.

Approximately three feet high, the boulders obstruct a driver’s view to the east towards any approaching pedestrians/traffic on Wadams Way.

In addition to, and part of, this blocked view is bush on the property paralleling Townsend Road which also blocks the view to the east.

A driver in a small low riding car must creep past the stop line into the intersection to obtain a view of any oncoming traffic from the east.

Also, the stop sign is obscured by this bush on property 2127.

And, finally, I have observed a driver totally ignoring the newly installed stop signs on Townsend Road by driving straight through without even slowing his speed…  enforcement please.

Please refer to the attached map taken from your pdf map and enhanced to indicate the position of the intersection view block.
