Ludowici Georgia has its snowbird trap. Brattletown has its traffic weir that will overturn the unfamiliar 18-wheeler/driver who, in following the lane markers around the Park Place/ Courthouse curve, will shurely hang up on the jagged boulders arranged at the edge of the sidewalk. The property owner, in order to discourage tractor trailers from taking the curve by driving up on the sidewalk and occasionally his lawn to get around the challengely tight truck turn, landscaped that corner with I.E.D.s which seem to entrap a truck about every other month. The DMV, Fire department, and industrial tow truck come, the key artery is clogged, and another person whose bread&butter is driving, gets a mark on his license and his insurance goes up. Not so the property owner; each time the rocks are bumped he files a claim for damages and the insurance co. pays him approximately $3000. The Traffic Safety Committee met in May to discuss the issue but were at a loss as to what to do beyond putting a sign to alert truck drivers approaching the tight curve of the availability of driving upon the traffic islands making a wide turn to avoid rolling up on the sidewalk (and maybe the rocks). The TSC believes the rocks' presence lends safety to pedestrians. Acquesition of just a little bit of property by the town in order to widen the curve would cause a delemma; the business zoning minimum size for the property would be subseded and so would cause hardship for the owner (who also owns many business properties on Putney Road.) Breaker 9: steer clear of that brattletown!
