Another 'traffic calming' measure found here in Ottawa
ging lane configurations
, forcing drivers to swerve
left and right when entering or exiting intersections
. This becomes dangerous
when the pavement
is covered in snow. The locals
, used to the funky
arrangement, will swerve, much to the panic of out-of-towners
wondering why the fsck
is this guy is driving into his lane.
It should be noted that emergency vehicles are also affected by such measures, so in reality, someone somewhere may die because an ambulance could not reach him in time.
