Dangerous to make assumptions about Wirral road
2:20pm Tuesday 3rd September 2013 in Letters
I DO not agree with Mr Karran, re cars using Lees Lane (Globe Mailbox, August 21, 2013).
Cars turning right into Lees Lane from Chester High Road have vehicles overtaking them on the passenger side of their car.
It has always been a common code of practice for the cars turning into Lees Lane to let the cars turning right, from the opposite direction, enter the lane when there is a build-up of traffic.
When I am in the crown of the road waiting to turn right and the car opposite flashes their lights it is a signal allowing me to go not the car coming out onto the high road.
It is very dangerous for you to assume that, as they could be hit by the cars overtaking me on the passenger side of my car.
The cars travelling towards Chester are doing between 30- 40mph.
No doubt you will refute this claim, but I suggest you stand as the top of Lees Lane at commuter time and observe the procedure that has been the code of practice for many years.
