The closer it gets to Xmas the worse it's gonna get. It should be mandatory to take a defensive driving course.

I had my accident there many years ago... It wasn't my fault. Court dates, doctors and still living with pain, I have seen much more in that spot since. They need to redevelop that area but I was told it was fine. Bull, it's like the old rumor "3 deaths and you get a stop sign".... Give me a break, look into the traffic patterns and change it up NOW!

The road is a nightmare.. . My house backs 347 and I am one house from Lake ave.. I travel both rodes several times a day and I am scared everytime I have to make a turn or cross over 347.. Living right here I can tell you there are a lot of accidents...

This was MY car accident. I am plagued at how it happened and I am trying to get through the nightmares i've had since. Nobody should have to suffer through another head on collision as I did because I was traveling easbound on 347 and the other driver made the left turn to head southbound on Lake Ave and stopped in front of me in the left lane when he realized the turn was not safe to have made. The turn light for that intersection is improperly operated and I sincerely hope I can help change it to avoid another accident as this.
