Bully for young drivers and their teacher at Gulf Coast High School in North Naples.
When the Daily News issued an invitation for readers to tell us about the trickiest and most dangerous intersections in Collier County, Debra Ogden sensed the opportunity for them to speak out and make a difference.
Many of them chose to write of an intersection with which they have almost daily, firsthand experience — Immokalee Road and Interstate 75, near their school.
Their responses ought to be required reading for road engineers and contractors — reminding them who their real clients are and what they think of the product.
The students wrote with passion about the construction work that by now is nearly finished. They wrote that the seemingly endless work left traffic continually shifting lanes, which led to confusion, inconvenience, aggravation, gridlock and danger.
Scary, they wrote.
They got it exactly right.
Congratulations to them.
They may also stand to learn as well as teach something. Only when it comes to road-building can plans for part of the job be changed in midstream, causing delays, and still cost taxpayers extra. Project officials insist they remain ahead of schedule and in line for a bonus.
