When UW Madison students roll out of bed feeling so groggy that it seems as if they got negative hours of sleep (or violently hungover), a vast number of students have one thought in their head. Coffee from Dunkin. They then rally their roommates and friends and pack a car, and begin their journey.

It is a very nice drive and depending on where you are coming from, you might even get a glimpse at one of our two beautiful lakes. Then all of a sudden you see it. The beautiful orange and pink sign appears on your left and you turn on your blinker to turn into the parking lot. However, you quickly realize that the medium you want to cross has a "no left turn" warning. Being the good samaritan you are, you continue driving to the next place where you are allowed to make a legal U-Turn. 

Here lies the problem, this is no easy U-Turn, this is a U-Turn directly into traffic on one of the three busiest roads in the entire city. You finally see your gap in traffic and take it. Uh-Oh, you didn't turn your wheel far enough and are now horizontal in Park Street and are now panicking trying to make a three-point turn while no one in the car feels any sympathy for your situation. People in the oncoming traffic are typically kind enough to slow down and allow you to operate, but all it takes is one person texting in driving to T-bone you.

The solution here is simple, allow that gap where you could turn directly into the parking lot to be accessible to traffic in both lanes. The city will become a safer place, and the curb outside of Mister Car Wash will thank you greatly. Please consider taking time out of your day to help this cause.
