An intersection near our house has experienced a number of severe accidents. Two within a ten day period a year ago.
Both occurred during rush hour. The city has since put up a sign prohibiting anything but a right turn between 3 and 6 p.m.
Unfortunately it is pretty much completely disregarded. A stream of cars is passing by our house right now, and I guarantee very few will be turning right when they get to the stop sign.
We moved into our house in August 2001. It didn’t take long before I decided that same intersection was dicey at best. Since then I’ve never done anything but make right turns there, no matter the time of day.
What’s with people?
I have not been aware of accidents in the past year. But there hadn’t been many in the previous 15 years or so either. It’s not safe. Period.
