Letter: Left turns an issue at new store


I would like to express concern in regard to the intersection of Lee Blvd. and State Route 69 where Trader Joe's is located. Increasingly I am seeing drivers making illegal left turns outside of the left turn lane into State Route 69 at the traffic light when leaving the mall or Trader Joe's. This is becoming a daily thing and one that will cause an accident and possible injury or death. Because of the increasing frequency of this pattern, there needs to be a left turn light put in place to reduce the possibility of accidents due to double left turns being made which are a result of illegal left turns being made. I hope that the city or the state can address this matter seriously and soon before severe accidents happen at this popular shopping stop!

I would like to give attention to Harkin's Theatres of Arizona and in Prescott Valley for making captioning available for its community residents with hearing loss. Anyone with hearing loss can now check out a captioning device and watch any of its movies at any time with captioning to enjoy the full benefit of the movie they are watching. Congrats Harkin's for making it possible for people with hearing loss to enjoy movies with their family and friends at the box office. The Prescott area is becoming more user friendly for people with hearing loss to participate in the daily every day activities of life in this over 100,000 resident mountain community called "Preskit." Thank you Harkin's Theatres for taking the lead.

If they're making left turns illegally then it wouldn't be an accident, now would it? It's called negligence.

@Jack Clevenger.

Rather than putting in a traffic signal I would suggest the State start taking away driving privileges from people who continually ignore the rules of the road.
Anyone careless enough to turn from the wrong lane does not need assistance from a traffic control signal, they need to take a taxi.

Ok. That settles it. From now on I am calling the city of Prescott, “Um doo doo de dum dim”.

Since these are all simple words, each of which is a single syllable. There should be no trouble in pronouncing it any more.

... as soon as you can get the city of Tucson to pronounce its name the way it's spelled.

How about the people that had relatives here as early as 1869? They called it PresKut/Kit back then...it is NOT phonetically pronounced nor has it ever been. I have references in a family bible stating that relatives were born in Prescutt...hum?

There's a greater amount of pre-1970s natives of Prescott that call it "PRES-KUT" than "PRES-KIT".

How about we all try to forget both of the stupid pronunciations and start pronouncing words more like how they are spelled: "PRES-COT" !
