New ouija boards

The City of Grass Valley needs some new ouija boards for its traffic planners.

Having been out of the mainstream due to illness, I had not used the Main Street, Richardson, Bennett intersection until last week.

I approached Main in the right-turn lane to go to the post office only to discover no left turn lane to the post office. Going straight ahead, I took the South Access Road, up Auburn and Main to the post office.

But alas, when I exited the post office, there was a no left turn sign. Back to the access road again.

Each of the streets have some turn restrictions, including no left turn from the gas station on the corner.

That intersection is a humdinger. Just think what the traffic planners could do with Brunswick and Sutton, South Auburn and McKnight or even Main and Brunswick if they had new ouija boards!

As for me, I was taught to adapt and overcome, so I solved the problem. I go to the Cedar Ridge Post Office where Joel, Patty or Kurt will welcome you with a courteous smile.
