Close Call

London, KY

#1 Jul 16, 2013
Dear Monticello Police... Will you PLEASE!!!! Do something about the Pure Dumas's that pass on the shoulder at the Walmart entry.(Not at the redlight). Someone is going to get KILLED because of the pure stupid people that pass on the shoulder at high speeds there. I have had many close calls there. The city can make a lot of money there by righting TICKETS THERE and they may save an life also.

There needs to b a turning lane there bAd! I don't know why there isn't. If nothin else block that turn completely so it's not even there! As far as people passing on the shoulder I feel it's safer to pass than to sit there and get run over by the idiot flyin up behind u on his cell phone not paying attention. Do something bout this please before someone gets killed there city of Monticello!!!

I agree with you both. If I ever pass there I make sure to stop first and put on a turn signal, and keep a look out for the ones behind me. I've waited a good 5 minutes there once and decided not to do that again if I could help it.

I have seen a couple of people almost rear ended there before. It really does need fixed.

I have done no research but I have always believed it is illegal to pass on the side of the road and it creates a very dangerous situation for all parties involved. I think that if you are passing on the right hand side of the road and hit someone you are at fault. if everyone follows the law we would probably ok.

I agree with Bob! I'd rather take my chances passing on the shoulder than get ran over waiting on someone to turn. There def needs to b a turning lane there!

yes, a good idea to have the state make some type of turning lane or passing lane to make it right.

I stop at the light with my turn signal on then watch dutifully for people passing me on the shoulder then with perfect timing, run them off the road. I also like to be the first in line turning at a light when people try to make it through just as their light turns red. I go off the line like a drag racer and make them slam on their breaks. I am very egotistical.

Why is it dangerous to pass on the right side of the road? Makes no sense, the only person that you could possibly hit would be somebody turning left out of Walmart, and then you would have to simply not see them and cut back in to hit them.

You could hit a pedestrian walking up the road.it just makes more sense for me to stop and wait.should be a turn lane though.if I get a$$ ended oh well . Won't be the first time.

it is illegal to do this in Ky and many states. I did look at the law in Ky. in addition if you think about it...you are behind a car that waiting to turn to the left...someone comes up behind you and then YOU decide to attempt to go around the car that is turning..if both of you decide to go at the same time there is a great potential for a wreck. that is the biggest reason it makes sense to me not to pass illegally. MAKE A LEGAL PASS LANE AND SOLVE THE ISSUE.

You need to complain to the Mayor or the County Judge. They have to request the work to be done by the state DOT. I complained and that is what I was told.
