A Corner Brook driver wonders why crosswalks in the city are allowed to disappear this time of the year.
He says crews get out in June or July and apply the paint and then they are never seen again until summer rolls around again.
“The lines for crosswalks are nowhere to be seen and it’s been that way for some time.
“Surely, crews can reapply the paint in early fall when the weather is good and they just might last most of the winter,” he said.
A reader sent along this timely note:
“Will somebody please do something about people parking in no parking areas, especially fire lanes. People seem to justify illegally parking if they are going to the ATM or a smoke shop and it “will only take a minute.”
“Since the police cannot be everywhere, I assume that malls and the stores have the authority to call a tow truck.
“They might lose a few angry customers but will gain many others. With Christmas around the corner, this problem is getting worse,” the note says.
A caller wondered why a photo of a white coat seal accompanied a story about the seal hunt.
She said it would be better to have a photo of an adult seal “eating the belly out of one of our salmon.
“We haven’t hunted white coats for decades as far as I know,” she said.
