Leaving a business along this stretch (Missouri Flat between Walmart and Pleasant Valley Road) is not for the impatient nor faint of heart; at times it takes nearly five minutes to pull out. Like most who frequent this area, I’ve learned to judge cross traffic carefully and step on it when it is safe to go.
Leaving True Value, imagine my great surprise to have a young man in a distant white truck not only decline to ease up on his lead foot, but actually speed up to pass me in the center turn lane!
Maybe the speed limit of 45 mph is too high for this congested area, or perhaps more speeding tickets need to be given out. Until we have the parkway in (several years), it seems something should be done to mediate traffic more safely. It gets more dangerous every year.
