When I use the mailbox lane by Village Hall across from the post office, I am always puzzled by the traffic signs.
If I go through and drop off mail, I come to the end of the little service drive and the shortest way back out would be to turn left. I would stop at one stop sign at the end of the service drive, stop at another one a little further on, and then get out of there.
Why the insistence that I turn right? Am I supposed to turn right and then cut through the parking spaces in order to do a u-turn and get to the exit drive?
Or am I supposed to drive around the whole complex, past the library and village hall?
It seems like it's designed to increase traffic in the parking lots, especially by the library where kids are. I do not like driving through busy parking lots.
What's the purpose? It seems to have been carefully thought out, given the care given to posting the traffic signs.
