To the Editor:

Use “Funds” to improve New Milford traffic flow.

The major roadways in the town of New Milford are Connecticut State Roads. As such, New Milford will have little or no influence on recommended modifications. Efforts will only produce a “storyline” for local newspapers.

How to get “Left turn motorists” to “Toe the line” at road intersections: It may be legal for a Left turn motorist to stop within the center of a traffic lane while the following traffic is forced to stop until the detaining left turn maneuver is completed.

Develop an “artful solution” to promote “Left turn awareness” (short of painting a row of human toes along the center road dividing line) or a roadway “Amazon artful curved sweep” at the approach to the road intersection.

At intersections, the typical white paint line on the right side of the road lane could be curved (closer to the asphalt curb) or remove curbing to indicate a greater passing area for following cars.

Many intersections just have white line limitations and are with poorly maintained right road lane gravel passing shoulders which become a challenge for the following passing motorists.

Hart buses encounter poorly maintained road shoulders. Some of the gravel dips are so deep, it makes one wonder if it really is a kneeling bus to load passengers.
