We so not need a light there. All we
need is drivers to look both ways before
there cross a 4 lane highway......
An 18 wheeler can not stop on a dime.
He has a lot of weight behind him-pushing.
Just like a train........
It takes a certain number of fatalities before a traffic light is installed. I agree about a traffic light at that intersection. There also needs to be a crossing section for Spencer Ave and College Drive for the college students and walkers.
Its called PAY ATTENTION!!! I used to live in Lamar county and I still visit regularly. A light isn't needed there. What is need is common sense. You are at a 4 lane highway STOP BEFORE YOU PULL OUT IN TRAFFIC!!! Its that simple.
I know Austin Dean and he is still suffering from knee pain because some idiot pulled out in front of him. Was Austin paying attention Yes he was and that's what kept him from plowing into the driver's side door. Was the driver of the other Vehicle.. NO.
When I was 3 I was involved in a automobile accident at what is now Zebulon Road (at the time it was called Mt. Calvery Church Road)in Milner. We were crossing the highway heading to the Red and White in Milner when we were hit. Guess what there is STILL no light there and I have seen several accidents there in my 30+ years on this earth.
I have seen accidents happen at Major intersections with stop lights at them. So, just because you want a stop light because someone is to lazy to obey traffic laws doesn't mean its going to stop the accidents. People run red lights every day. I see it all the time here in Savannah and small towns like Barnesville are no different.
