2 lanes plus 2 left turn lanes and one right turn lane at an intersection by my house is now down to one of each. Every other direction is reduced by at least one lane at this intersection. On the other hand, we have a median lane (lose the center turning lane) that is striped (no entry) and is 4 lanes wide. WTF????????
Why? Because every traffic engineer planner in the world (except the one I know) is a fricking idiot!
Traffic calming can kiss my ass. My theory is that the city plans to install speed traps after these artificial bottlenecks. F***ers.
