LETTER: How are Annacis Island ‘cheaters’ cheating?

Larry Miller questions the notion that Annacis Island "cheaters" are doing anything wrong by using it as a shortcut.

Regarding the drivers bypassing line-ups for the Alex Fraser Bridge: I do not understand why these folks are called “queue jumpers” or “cheaters.” As long as drivers abide by the rules of the road and do not contravene the highway traffic act while driving on public roadways, what are they doing wrong? Traffic is like water, it always finds the least path of resistance.

I do understand the gridlock frustration of many who work or try to shop on the island, but isn’t that a result of poor planning and design? Let’s face it, the advantage of being so accessible may also be the greatest disadvantage.
