Letter: Traffic around Webb Road flea market is out of hand
I would like to know what can be done about the traffic in and out of the flea market on Webb Road on the weekends. Vehicles are parked on the sides of the road,so when you do come up to the stop sign and are able to pull out, the visibility is awful, especially when an 18-wheeler is parked there.
Also, the person that is there begging for money has his car parked on the right side of the road making it hard to see traffic coming from that way.
The begging for money is another issue. Most weekends, there will be at least two people and sometimes three, standing on the side with signs asking for money. Do they not have to have any kind of permit from the county to beg for money?
Going anywhere on Saturday or Sunday and having to go by there is awful. When you turn in off of Webb Road, most everyone assumes you are going to the flea market. They will pull right out in front of you and block the lane, and they will sit there until someone lets them in the line of traffic.
We have to take an alternate route on Sundays just to get to the interstate to go to church.
If the flea market is not responsible for this problem, then who is? I would hope there was never an emergency that an ambulance or any other type of emergency vehicle would have to come to my home on the weekend and come that way, they would be detained, I am sure, due to the traffic at the flea market. The customers there think they own the roads.
