At the intersection of Mount Newton X Road and the Pat Bay Highway heading east, there are two lanes of waiting traffic — one left-turn lane and one through-lane extending beyond the entrance to the White Spot. Cars turn right onto the highway, edging past the waiting through-lane.
Westbound, the through-lane and left-turn southbound lane have about 18 seconds of advance green lights. The westbound through-lane advances on MountNewton X Road — until somebody stops to turn left across a double yellow line with two solid lanes of waiting cars.
The eastbound left-turn lane is now blocked by waiting cars stopped on the highway.
The cars behind the left-turner start to bump their way past the car on the edge of the pavement, breaking down the asphalt edge and creating potholes.
As the left turn eastbound lane starts to move, the car that is causing the problems turns in front of two lanes of oncoming traffic racing to make the light.
Enjoy your hamburger. It could easily kill somebody. What’s it going to take to stop this?
