MOUNT VERNON — Anyone who has tried to enter or exit the CVS parking lot at Vernonview Drive knows it can be pretty hair-raising when there is heavy traffic.

    I also say close the drive to Vernonview dr. It is not the citys problem to buy up property to fix the problem it’s CVS’S.
    and whoever is involved in a accident there should have CVS pay for the damages since thier aware of it.

    I have had several instances in which I have been continuing through Vernonview Drive, only to have somebody fail to yield and ALMOST plow into me. The trouble is, if you are headed down the hill toward Coshocton Avenue, and the intersection on Vernonview between Yauger and Coshocton is stacked up, you need to stop at the entrance of the intersection to keep it clear–giving the appearance of a four-way stop. Then, when the light turns and you can move forward, people coming from both CVS and Yauger feel that they have the right of way, when they do not.

    That intersection is a nighmare because the moronic drivers in this town insist on treating it as a 4 way stop. It is NOT a 4 way stop, people!

    The person that is responsible for the CVS entrance is the fool who approved the building plans. No foresight whatsoever. I agree – close the Vernonview Drive entrance. Maybe a sign on Yauger and Eastwood stating “Vernonview Drive traffic does not stop.” would educate those treating the intersection as a 4 way stop. (I have my doubts about this, since the people who treat it that way now probably wouldn’t even bother to read the signs or, if they did, would ignore them.)

    what about the trouble at sychar, coshocton, and brown st? that’s terrible. In fact about a month ago there was a large accident there involving two trucks.

    My lord! I agree with Alumni!

    … The blame doesn’t rest entirely with CVS though. Lots of business located in an area poorly served by the road network. There have been a few patches, but nothing that’s worked very well.

    The CVS outlet onto Vernonview Drive should be closed. That would be a start.


    Now let me understand this. The city lets billion dollar CVS create the problem. And the taxpayers foot the bill. Boycott CVS until they foot the bill. They are plundering us !
