Too often I see people trying to hitch a ride on the above mentioned piece of road (uphill, heading north out of town). From the Norman Smith St intersection until after the Huka Falls Rd intersection the west side of the highway is only 2 lanes wide with no opportunity for vehicles to stop. Surely there should be NO STOPPING lines there. There should also be signs advising hitch hikers that hitching is NOT PERMITTED on that section of road.
