A caller questions why road signs are telling drivers to slow down unnecessarily.

The man said the 30 km/h speed limit signs along the Lewin Parkway, between the east end of Curling and the Millbrook Mall, are fine when road work is happening. Trouble is, the caller says, there hasn’t been anyone working along that section for the past two weeks or more.  

“How can these people get away with that?” the caller asks.

“The least they could do is put plastic bags over the signs when they’re not working there.”


A driver wonders how long it will take to get some action on the blocked driving lane at the east end of Riverside Drive.

“The one lane of the road has been barred off for weeks and there seems to be no action going on there — except for the traffic lights that are blinking.

“Surely it can’t be so serious a condition that it will take half the summer to fix,” he said.


Another reader says he paid special attention to the CBC story this past week which detailed plans by the provincial government to close down the ring road in St. John’s and clean up the litter that had accumulated during the winter.

“I guess they’ll be doing the rest of the province later,” he said.

“Why would they be paying special attention to a road in the capital and leaving the rest of us to our own devices?

“I’ll be looking forward to seeing provincial government workers cleaning up our west coast ditches as summer wears on,” he said.


A Corner Brook man says he wants one simple question answered by someone at city hall: “Does the city still have a bylaw on the books that makes it illegal to park heavy equipment in residential areas?”

He sounded like he had some specific reason for asking.
