Road Surface Marking

Aware of blind bends

I refer to the letter headlined 'Drivers far more dangerous than sharks' (South China Morning Post, June 7) concerning the traffic from Chung Hom Kok to Repulse Bay.

Tried to help

THE standard of driving in Hong Kong has reached such a low level that many acts of bad driving are deemed acceptable by the police. But minor indiscretions are pounced upon.

Low injury accident record

I REFER to the letter headlined, ''Near misses'' (South China Morning Post, May 9). The junction of Peak Road, Magazine Gap Road and Coombe Road has a very low record of injury accidents. None appears to have been caused by the downhill right-turning vehicles from Peak Road.

Re-painted

I REFER to the letter from Dana M. Goetz headlined, ''Faded lines'' (South China Morning Post, on January 26).

Immediate action was taken by this department. The road markings at the junction of Cotton Tree Drive and Harcourt Road, were re-painted on January 27.

Faded lines

THREE weeks ago I was involved in a car accident and on Friday, a near miss at the same intersection.

The person(s) responsible for road markings should be aware that almost all of the markings at the bottom of Cotton Tree Drive, near the light-controlled intersections, are no longer visible and that many drivers are crossing what would be the double white lines.
