Charleston's frequent mergers dangerous
Original post made by padriver, Barron Park, on May 24, 2012
What I think is confusing is that these drivers know that very soon this one lane goes to two and the truck was blocking their view (at least for that first car whizzing by but the second plainly could see me stuck in front of the truck trying to complete my turn into the shopping center).
I wonder how many accidents and near accidents are caused by this confusing one lane going into two only to merge right back into one all along the Charleston- Arasterdero corridor.
This configuration is not safer.
