Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, November 11, Dizzy traffic circle whirl proves confusing to drivers By MICHAEL ROGERS 'Herald Staff Writer "Those (expletive deleted) people who can't do a simple thing like drive around a traf- fic circle a driver might think to himself as he places his life in the hands of some Lethbridge motorists. Looking for a headache? Try driving around the traffic circle at Stafford Drive and 5th Avenue North at 8 a.m.. during the noon hour, or around p.m.. complain some drivers. There have been a few ac- cidents at the circle in the last months, but no serious in- juries were caused. Most motorists observed Friday used the circle incorrectly. City police traffic inspector Bill West said when in a traf- fic circle, the vehicle on the left always has the right-of- way. The right lane is used only to briefly enter the circle and make a right turn. The drivers entering the cir- cle must signal their inten- tions to travel around the cir- cle or to make a right turn. They must also be in the cor- rect lane. "The only time a vehicle on the left has the right-of-way is in a traffic Insp. West pointed out. He added that when someone is charged with a traffic offence after an inci- dent at the circle, it is usually something like failing to yield the right-of-way, following too close, or careless driving. There are other offences, depending on the circum- stances. "If people use the circle properly it can be a safe and easy method of moving traf- fic, but you can't educate these Insp. West said. "I can talk and he added, "but people won't accept the fact they make mistakes. They will say 'I'm a good driver, its those other donkeys who can't drive.' Many cars observed moving north on 9th Street Friday entered the circle in the right or outside lane, switched to the left lane while in the circle, then back to the right lane and out of the circle and headed north down Stafford Drive. Some vehicles entered the circle driving in the middle of the two lanes, while others didn't bother to signal their intentions upon entering the circle. A number of other motorists entering the circle observed vehicles already in the circle but did not yield the right-of- way, probably thinking to themselves, "I've got enough time to get in there I'm not waiting for that guy." One man, driving north on 9th Street, entered the circle from the right lane, then, while in the circle, switched to the left lane and stopped com- pletely for about five seconds and proceeded around the circle, cut across the right lane and turned into Gains Gas Station. Shortly after that a man driving a jeep west on 5th Avenue North, zoomed into the circle and cut off another motorist who was forced to break to avoid collision. Provincial show to go overseas Education group to be consulted The home and school association and other parent groups will be consulted dur- ing the public school board's process of reviewing its dis- cipline policy. The Lethbridge council of home and school associations ?.sked to be consulted in a letter to be presented to the public school board Tuesday but the board has already included parent consultation one of the steps of the process.

Council to consider Radburn fencing plan Recommendations aimed at resolving neighborhood differences in the laneless Radburn subdivision over fencing and other problems will go to city council's next meeting Nov. 18. The recommendations arise from a survey of the 76 property owners in the southeast Lethbridge neighborhood which was dis- cussed by a committee of residents and aldermen Thur- sday. In cases where the response was unanimous, it is hoped council will allow the City Scene Constables subdued suspect A man was arrested by Lethbridge city police Sunday after a fight and chase by a constable. The man was being arrested for being intoxicated in the 300 block of 5th Avenue South when he took a swing at a constable. The constable wrestled the man to the sidewalk but the man regained his feet and fled down an alley, police say. The constable caught up with the man but the man swung the constable around, twisting the constable's ankle. The man pull- ed free and ran down the alley where he was apprehended by two other constables. The man still resisted and had to be hand- cuffed before being lodged in police cells. Fernand Gervais, 23. Blairmore, has been charged with resisting arrest and is scheduled to appear in Lethbridge provin- cial court Tuesday- Man charged after accident A Cold Lake. Alberta man has been charged with following too close after an accident Saturday at 2nd Avenue A North and 13th Street. Lethbridge city police say cars driven by William Alex- ander on 13th Street N. at about 6 a.m. and Laura Winters, collided. No injuries were reported, but damage resulted from the accident. in windows broken Two six-by-eight windows, were found broken at Ward's Services Ltd.. 1712 2nd Ave. S., by Lethbridge city police at a.m. today. Police checked the area but could find no one. Police also received several reports of vandalism to cars on the weekend as aerials were broken off or bent and mirrors damaged. Garth Dortch. Coaldale. reported his car stolen from 3rd Avrr.Dc 3rd ]7th Street South Saturday. He told police he parked the car about. a.m.. leaving the keys in the ignition, and when he returned about A a.m. the car was gone. Scholarship awarded girl documents be drawn to sup- port this unanimity, said Aid. Vaughan Hembroff, a member of the committee. Residents were asked in the survey whether they want to continue restrictions that are a part of their ownership documents. The restrictions, which prohibit building of fences or planting of trees and shrubs within a certain distance of rear walkways and in other areas, have been ignored by- some residents. They were intended to main- tain the open-space concept of the subdivision, which con- sists of five cul-de-sacs with walkways instead of lanes at the rear. A somewhat similar concept has been used in the design of West Lethbridge. Response to the survey wasn't unanimous on all points, said Aid. Hembroff. Where it wasn't, it's hoped the committee can get some degree of unanimity on a neighbor to neighbor basis. The city has a moral if not legal obligation to test out the agreements to see if they are valid. Aid. Hembroff said. In effect, he added, there are five separate Radburn plans, because the documents signed by each owner apply only to the cul-de-sac on which he lives. Thus, for example, residents of one cul-de-sac could agree to do away with fencing restrictions, while residents of another could keep them. He declined to elaborate further on the restrictions. Civil group provides aid for underdog Every city has its problems with abuse of human right: and Lethbridge is no excep- tion, says Mrs. Dary Sturrock, secretary of thh city's Human Rights and CM Liberties association. The association, in opera- tion for two years, is compris- ed of volunteers who attempl to provide information and ir some cases, protection for in- dividuals and groups against discrimination and loss of rights and liberties. "We can make available ex- pertise and information regarding laws and civil rights and procedures in law. So many people don't really know what their Mrs. Sturrock said In the past year the local association has handled, "con- almost 100 cases involving human rights and liberties. "Generally, the cases in- volve either a lack of com- munication or a misunder- standing between an in- dividual and an authority. We have to try and educate the people and the institutions as to their she said. Some of the association's concerns, she said, may in- volve infringements of human and individual rights in areas of housing; welfare rights; social and ethnic dis- crimination; discrimination on the basis of sex, life-style, age, religious or political beliefs; police or judicial abuse; invasion of privacy and children's rights. "Most of the people who need help in asserting their rights are often inarticulate and afraid to cause any trouble. "They don't know where to go, or who to turn to for the solving of their said Mrs. Sturrock. The local office of the human rights and civil liber- ties association is at Room 3, Professional Building, 740 4th Ave. S., and is open from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday. The commission is under the jurisdiction of the provin- cial government, while the association, with branches across the country, is af- filiated with the Canadian Federation of Civil Liberties and Human Rights associations in Ottawa. tarp saves food An expenditure of for a tarpaulin can save farmers in Southern Alberta hundreds of dollars each fall in their grain movement. A study completed by the Manitoba department of agriculture shows 17 bushels of wheat were lost from an un- covered three-ton truck travelling 30 miles an hour for eight miles in an 18 mile per hour wind. At today's wheat prices, that represents a loss of The Alberta department of agriculture carried out similar tests on oats, barley and rapeseed hauled in un- covered trucks, trucks with wind baffles and a track covered by a tarpaulin. The trucks were driven at 50 miles per hour for six miles in a wind blowing at five miles per hour.
