Driving into and out of Victoria along Sooke Road is challenging enough without having to also deal with people disobeying traffic laws.
Twice within the last 10 days, I have encountered vehicles trying to make either an illegal left turn into the 17 Mile House or an illegal left turn into the 17 Mile House parking area across the road from the pub. This is extremely dangerous and I am amazed that there haven’t been more serious accidents at this location as other drivers are not expecting a vehicle to stop and wait for a break in the traffic so they can turn.
There needs to be regular police surveillance at this spot, as well as large signs “reminding” motorists that it is illegal, not to mention treacherous, to cross the double solid line.
