The short version is that one of the contractors’ trucks was in the entrance of the gas station apparently attempting to do a wide turn into the contractors’ entrance and came into contact with my vehicle which was on the left of the truck. Suffice it to say, it was not a happy experience, but that’s a story for another day.
As I generally visit this gas station at least twice per week, as such I have been able to see what transpires when these large trucks enter the gas station:
1. there is no signage to indicate that large trucks are turning there;
2. the sign that says it is the contractors’ entrance faces west so no one on Wrightson Road heading west would see it before they turn into the gas station;
3. there is no safety signage on the ground, eg yellow and black stripes to indicate that one should proceed with caution;
4. the trucks reverse out the gas station almost onto the road to turn into the Flour Mills entrance;
5. some of them park on the pavement in front of the gas station so vehicles attempting to exit the gas station back onto Wrightson Road cannot see oncoming traffic.
I hope that someone in authority can review this dangerous situation.
