#LESNERBRIDGE : “Police also warned that they will be monitoring the area and will issue tickets for violations.”

No doubt you’ve seen dangerous driving on the Lesner Bridge too.

There will now be a Police presence there.

View article at Pilotonline.com:

Tractor trailers carrying over-sized loads to the site have repeatedly encountered drivers who cut in front of the trucks and then come to a sudden stop, police said in a statement released Friday. Because of the extreme weight of the trucks – about 280,000 pounds – they need a distance that is longer than a football field to be able to come to a stop.

  1. As we have all noticed the 35mph. speed limit is not adhered to. Approaching or traversing the bridge is already a challenge without speeding irresponsible drivers. I’ve witnessed 2 accidents heading east at the bottom of the bridge where anyone turning right onto Vista Circle has to come to “almost” a complete stop to make the right turn due to no right merging lane and a very, very sharp angled turn. Many others neighbors have advised they also have seen rear-enders at that same spot. I’m wondering if some people don’t report the accident since it is a bump-ender?

    • That problem at Shore Drive and Vista might be exacerbated by the presence of a non-conforming sign (for Bubba’s)blocking a clear line of sight. I have complained about it twice and nothing is done.
