Upkeep road lines downtown

Why does our city have no lines painted on our roads even though it is mid-June?

Why does our city have no lines painted on our roads even though it is mid-June?

I have had my learner’s licence since the end of 2011 and I have never really had any major issues while learning to drive. However, it’s almost halfway through June right now and the snow has been gone for a while but I see that the lines on the roads downtown still have not been repainted.

As a driver who is learning how to drive, I find this very frustrating. I find myself panicking as I drive through downtown Williams Lake because I cannot figure out where to stop since the stop lines are worn down and I often find myself driving down the middle of a two-lane side of road because I didn’t realize that I wasn’t quite in one lane or the other.

I have gotten to the point that I don’t even like driving downtown because I can’t see the lines on the road, if I practice my driving at all, I drive on the highways where you can actually see the lines. We, as drivers, run the risk of all kinds of accidents and losing my licence because I could not see the lines on the road.

Please paint the lines back onto the roads, they aren’t just there to make the roads prettier.
