When will the town demand that the NCDOT repave the pathetic pavement "fix" at the main entrance deceleration lane to Birkdale Village on N.C. 73 at Lindholm Drive?

Why does the Town of Cornelius permit two retail establishments on West Catawba Avenue to sell drug paraphernalia and synthetic drugs?

I am peeved there is not a "U Turn Yield To Right Turn" sign at the busy u-turn in front of the Cambridge Grove subdivision on Sam Furr Road.

I’m not peeved but will speak for those who become peeved when they attempt to merge onto interstate highways at 20-25 mph slower than prevailing speed, obviously expecting traffic to slow to their pace.
