If Broad Street were reduced to one lane, how would fire trucks and emergency vehicles get through? We still see tractor-trailers going through as a necessity. What kind of nightmare could develop?
These planners do not seem to include logical thinking in their thinking when planning for these large vehicles to negotiate roundabouts and the kind of extended curbing on lower West Avenue in North Augusta. Why are there any three-lane markings on Broad Street that constrict the width of the lanes to a point that three cars cannot ride side by side? Why are extended-cab trucks not ticketed when they park and block off the lane nearest them?
Logic must prevail!
