My letter today is about drivers not obeying the signs along the highway — stop-yield signs for instance.
Hardly a day goes by that I don’t have to slam on my brakes to avoid getting into an accident.
At Exit 27, most of these drivers blow through and don’t stop there.
The state should pull up all the yield signs and sell them for scrap, then give the proceeds to the state.
I wrote to the Virginia State Police and the Alleghany County Sheriff’s Office about this matter. Seems like it is getting worse each day.
I enjoy riding around in my little red truck, but usually by the time I get back home, I’m a nervous wreck.
Maybe this letter will open people’s eyes to this problem at Exit 27.
I feel better talking about this.
