In all my years in Westport, only once have I seen a car going the wrong way in the narrow drive in front of Compo Acres Shopping Center.
Since the recent renovation though, it’s become an epidemic.
In the space of about 5 minutes yesterday, alert (and very frightened) “06880” reader Susan Shuldman spotted 3 — 3! — drivers who apparently entered by Trader Joe’s.
In the absence of “One Way/Do Not Enter” signs — and/or blithely ignoring all the cars facing them on both sides, and/or mesmerized by the prospect of Robek’s, SoulCycle or the texts they were reading — they casually cruised through the one-way traffic, calmly parked, and went about their business.
The good news: Thanks to the new, higher curbs, you can no longer exit directly from that parking lot into the Post Road.
