"To the manager of the Pilot Truck Stop on Md. 63, please consider making your northern most road an entrance-only and the French Lane Road an exit- only for your truckers. The traffic light at French Lane will allow the truckers to exit safely. When they exit by the northern most road, they very frequently pull out in front of other vehicles. There has been two fatalities involving truckers in this area. Please consider this solution before we have another tragedy. You can save lives by installing two simple signs."
