None of the people that commented on this thread have a clue what they are talking about. This interchange was purpose built. Everyone that has an opinion needs to you tube "diamond interchange". Then you can put your two cents worth in. This interchange has the safest transitions and the most efficient traffic flow. Like someone said earlier if people would stay off the phone while driving there wouldn't be any accidents.

You sir, are a shit for brains!! I don't have to watch or believe anything on the Internet when I can just drive across that piece of shit and tell for myself!! The accident record after several months will speak for itself! If there's more accidents than on the conventional overpass that will tell the story. Lol, you keep bringing up cell phones on this bridge, are you implying that its more difficult to use your cell phone on this bridge than a conventional bridge? If so, I AGREE!!

Small minded people don't like things that are different and they bitch about the most trivial things. If you had any brains you would know at first there might be a few more accidents until people figure out the interchange because its only the second one in the state. And since its been open there have only been a couple accidents and none of them as severe as the old way. There are stop lights now when there wasn't before and they are close enough together that it keeps the speed down so even if there are accidents they aren't as severe. And the cell phone comment you made shows you are the one that has the shit for brains you shouldn't be talking or texting while you are driving. Dumb asses like you are the ones that kill people because they couldn't wait 5 minutes to answer the phone. I have driven across it several times with a trailer even. It works just fine and I have never been in a situation where I thought I was going to have an accident. Maybe you should go back and retake your drivers test if you are having that many problems.

Where are morons like you hatched? Rather than defend that shitty overpass you should try to do as I said and wait and see how it performs in the first year and let the factual data tell the story instead of blaming cell phones, eating, etc. for a poor design!! You sound like a city official that supported that piece of shit and you're now trying to defend yourself without facts!! I think you are not only small minded, but you are very defensive pertaining to my opinion of a shitty bridge!! That makes me laugh like hell!! And shake my head!! Thank you for that!!

So, since the accident records on these overpasses, as a whole, are lower than traditional overpasses,(thats already a proven fact, in other areas these have been implemented).

Your contention is, that it doesn't matter, because it hasn't been tried in Farmington? Are we worse drivers than the rest of the country? More ignorant? Unable to read signs? Is there something different about us that would increase the accident count over those other cities and towns.

But ignorant folk are everywhere right? Not just Farmington area? But thanks for your insite into the area you live in as probably more incapable than most others.

You may be right!

Well all of this is nice but the ass hole who drove on the wrong side and hit me head on thought it was a bad design as well. Sadly he wasn't the first one. sit at rhoads and u will see many people don't get it. Y is traffic switched from right to left lane. I'm not in england. Y am I driving on the left? People don't get this.

If people would pay attention to the signs and watch where they are going there would be no problems.

It sounds to me like some people aren't smart enough to figure the new set-up out and the confusion that they feel turns to anger.

If it is so confusing to them maybe they just need to not use it. There are ways around it you know.

If you periodically reverse traffic lanes to welcome Europeon Tourists, you must be a redneck.

I had been avoiding it since it opened but I finally went through it last friday. It wasn't that bad as long that you pay attention to the signs and pavement arrows. I really don't know what the big deal is.
Terrible!!!!

It wasn't that bad??? I'm thrilled you think "it's not that bad"???? I am here to tell you it's very confusing to the majority of people I know! This is not England, if I drove on the left all the time I would get it, but We DON'T!! The amount of accidents in such a short time should tell them something! Who engineered this thing, He should be fired!!!

I'm sorry that it's so confusing to you. And no, it wasn't that bad. Like I said, I paid attention to the signs and road markings and didn't have any problems. I have to say that I won't be avoiding it any longer.

On a side note, easy on the exclamation points and question marks. You really only need one per sentence.
