I absolutely abhor what they’ve done with the Folly Rd./Maybank Hwy intersection. Whose bright idea was it to put a Stop sign in the merge lane towards Folly? I may not have a degree in traffic control, but even I can see this is pure foolishness! Why not a yield sign? Would that be so terrible? But nooo, they’re rather back traffic up in that lane, sometimes backing it up all the onto Maybank, especially in the horrible traffic conditions referred to as “5’oclock gridlock.” And those inane barrels in the median on Maybank…We use that median to pull out of that heinous little split and wait on traffic to die down on Maybank so we can pull in. It takes a long time for BOTH sides of traffic to clear up; that’s why the median was the perfect waiting spot. But back to that Stop sign: Do you think they made it large enough? And to put a stop sign, what, 10 feet away from a traffic light that will inevitably be turning red as you’re trying to rush on through traffic. It’s mind-boggling! And this was supposed to HELP the flow of traffic?! LIES! Thank God my boyfriend drives everywhere because with my lack of control and inherent road rage, I would have smashed that fucking sign with my car by now. Fucking stop sign.
