Letter: Entering Hwy 97 HOV lane a dangerous maneuver

…there may be legal lane changing laws that are life threatening.

To the editor:

In response to Frank Desmet’s letter (Sept. 4 Kelowna Capital News), not only do traffic violations threaten your life, there may be legal lane changing laws that are life threatening.

On Friday Sept. 4 at 9:40 a.m., a logging truck hit my Nissan Infiniti sedan when I was exiting the Parkinson Senior Activity Centre onto Highway 97.

Please be aware that when entering Highway 97 and determining that there are no vehicles approaching in the outside (HOV) lane, that it is possible a vehicle approaching in the middle lane may be speeding and changing lanes, entering into the outside (HOV) lane and hit you.

This is what happened to me and I want to prevent it from happening to you.

If you witnessed this accident, please respond.

Bonney Barnes, Kelowna
