Chaos reigns with 'eagle feed' on Roche Harbor Road

We too were also involved in a near-miss head-on collision at the intersection of Roche Harbor Road and Westcott Drive.

The nightly situation there is chaotic.

Tourists park on both sides of the road, walk to the center of Roche Harbor Road, to get a glimpse of the ritual eagle feed. Many are totally oblivious to the fact that cars need to turn right or left, sometimes quickly to avoid the oncoming car.

And let us not forget the children who dart out in front of the cars. This is a lawsuit waiting to happen.

I am flummoxed that this practice has been going on for so many years. This area is not designated as a tourist stop, and there is no signage to indicate for drivers to slow down.

If it is the Sheriff's Department that is in charge of the safety of our roads, please address this potential calamity
