I drive across EW connector every morning. Every time I get to Old Lawrenceburg Rd I get nervous. People coming off Old Lawrenceburg Rd take WAY too many chances. They will pull out and not accelerate quickly, dart straight to the left lane or just flat out don't give enough room for themselves. I can't tell you how many times I have nearly hit people through no fault of my own.

Prayers for all involved. I am sure its a nasty wreck. People coming down that hill at 55-60mph will annihilate another car creeping out of OLR at 10mph. could not imagine.

Prayers to the families.

They don't have much choice about that left lane because of the short distance to the other half of 420. The road dept should reroute one of the roads entirely so that they are directly across from one another and make it a real 4-way intersection.

Sure they do, pull into the right lane when its clear, accerate like your mean it, then get over. This allows the cars coming down the hill to have a chance to know what you are doing and for you to get to a safe enough speed that the others cars actually stand a chance to avoid smashing you.

If this only occured at this place, I would be on yourside. However, people in Frankfort do it ALL the time. Then do it coming back home too. People in the right turn lane on the other side of 420 by Big Eddy will go straight to the left lane. I hate to inform everyone, but there are TWO right turn lanes there. Get in the correct one if you need to be in the left lane.

That is such a dangerous place. My grandmother was killed in that location a few years ago. People need to slow down and pay attention.

Exactly, so then why do people insist on pulling out there with little room between the cars coming down the hill an themselves then NOT accelerate and/or shoot STRAIGHT to the left lane before checking if its clear?

It's dangerous because people around here drive like they are the only people on the road.

You got that right observer, they act like nobody else is on the road except them. Terrible they need to slow down, be patient, and pay attention.
