    That is a very dangerous intersection. I think a caution light would be good too.

    yes i live in that area. i drive that rd every other day to go visit my grandmother. ive been with ems for 4yrs now and there has been too many accidents at that intersection.

    i believe that if a 4 way stop would to be put it up it would decrease the possiblity of another accident.
