Description

I take the midhudson bridge home from work. Almost every day drivers that are coming onto rte 9 from rte 55 ignore the yield sign at the bottom of the ramp making for an extremely dangerous merge condition for traffic exiting rte 9 north, onto the bridge. It is a very poorly designed intersection made 1000 time worse by people going right thru the yield sign...I've even seen Dutchess Co Sheriffs do it on more than one occasion. I've heard it argued that if you're not merging onto rte 9 north the sign doesn't apply to you? I don't understand this logic....a yield sign is a yield sign it isn't for just some vehicles. The exact same condition applies for the intersection coming off the bridge (eastbound) turning onto rte 9... Where are the police?
