Letters: With arteries into Park City failing, we’re in for a rude awakening

A rude awakening

Now that the roundabouts on the Jeremy Ranch exit are near completion, we have a rare opportunity to use them to our advantage.

But instead, immediately, we have a problem. If one waits his turn to enter the circle and a car is coming and has the option to make a right or continue in the circle but fails to signal his/her/it intentions, the one waiting cannot move forward. (I used “it” in case we’ve got self-driven cars, independent AI-driven scooters and lost pigeons).

It seems to work providing the human element will play ball. And while I am at it, why not look at S.R. 224, in either direction, a desolate, hardly used road in the good old days, now transformed into a long parking lot, you choose the direction. What we have here is hardening of the arteries, and if Park City is the heart, we are awaiting a rude awakening. This morning, clear visibility, roads clean of snow, the exit off Interstate 80 to Kimball Junction spilled into the highway for the sheer number of vehicles.
