Drivers ignore law at SR 66 intersection

-A A +A

I have seen this happen often lately to other people and I have almost been hit there more than once.

When you are coming out of Wal-Mart and turning right toward Tell City on Indiana 66 on a green light, you have the right-of-way.

The person who is turning left across the intersection by Subway toward Tell City does not have right-of-way.  

Since I see this often I went to the Tell City Police Station to find out for sure.  I was met there by a most unfriendly officer who did take the time to tell me that I was right.

The person turning from Wal-Mart has the right-of-way over the person across highway turning left into your path.

I hope the woman in the white car who nearly broadsided me last week in such a hurry reads this or gets a driver’s manual and learns the law!
