    That is a very dangerous intersection, people are constantly running the red light or pulling out in front of oncoming traffic. We've had to slam on brakes numerous times to avoid hitting some idiot that pulled out in front of us while we had the green light at that intersection. Have also seen several times where people are just not paying attention to their surroundings & have not slowed down of moved for emergency sirens/lights almost causing more accidents. Hope everyone is ok.
