Those that were directly behind the accident had to wait over 2 hours to finally move while the investigation was going on. It was ridiculous!

those middle access roads Bixby and Rager need closed off. people take risks crossing 33 and trying to make left turns.

I agree that Bixby and Rager pose dangers with their direct access to 33, but am selfish enough to want Bixby to stay since I utilize it every time I travel north :-) When turing onto Bixby you need to signal and brake WAY in advance to let those behind you know, and "merging" into NB traffic from Bixby during rush hour is almost an exercize in Russian Roulette. It's not a matter of if, but WHO you will pull out in front of. Of course this could be prevented with some simple courtesy, but that never happens.

The police around here love shutting down roads every time someone farts. It adds drama. A fuel spill in Ohio gets even more attention, eight or nine fire trucks, white jump suits and the Coast Guard. Sometimes even grief counselors are brought in to consul stuck drivers. Welcome to Ohio.

Everybody should show some empathy and understanding. If the accident is bad enough to require medical care of any kind, you should just be glad it wasn't you! Geesh! What if it were, your child, or your husband, or your wife....And GET OUT of the **** way of the emergency vehicles! It's the law, people!! Stop pulling out in front of them and trying to beat them through the intersection! People are so RUDE !

what a thing to say. i know waiting in traffic sucks, i hate it as much as the next person. however, i was right behind that wreck. it was awful. i stopped to call 911 while staring down at a kid motionless and bleeding after being ejected from the car. sometimes a little commuter inconvenience just isn't the priority. surely you can understand that.

SHUT THOSE 2 STUPID ACCESS ROADS DOWN! There is NOT enough room for all of the vehicles (coming from both directions) to get in that small access area ... all it does it STOP traffic and almost causes accidents EVERY day! Take your lazy a** down to Gender Road

what about going east down 33 and the knobs merging clear over from Winchester Pike to get off on 104? I cannot believe that they can legally do that. Seems incredibly dangerous to me, expecially during the afternoon "rush" hour.

I'm not locking up my breaks to let them 3 lanes over within a 1/4 mile.

accleration lanes for right turns onto US 33 would be a solution along with closing the median crossing. But since it is not in the ODOT manual for that type of Road you would have a better chance of getting ODOT staff to masturbate with a handfull of broken glass than to change the manual
