I do believe your an idiot...i have seen several accidents there and some fatalities. You have alot of nerve to get on here and say she tried to kill her children, everyone makes mistakes and she is entitled to hers and has paid dearly! I have known her for 10 years and considering how assanine you sound your probably not half the mother she is! oh and let me guess, your somehow connected to the moron that hit her and her children. If you stop and think (that is if you do think) the non driving shit for brains that hit her would have been responsible for the deaths!

like i said, which apparently your too stupid to read, she has paid dearly for her mistakes...you can get on here and slander her but it does not change the fact that the intersection is dangerous! I know enough about her to know she would never endanger her children purposely and anyone that is a decent parent still makes mistakes! i guess when your child falls off his or hers bike and breaks an arm we'll start a thread on here about what a terrible parent you are! It doesn't alway matter how careful you try to be, things happen but instead of being thankful the kids are ok you want to get on here and point fingers and place blame...so what kind of person does that make you?

So, with the addition of the Dollar Store and cross traffic significantly increased there's only been 5 wrecks in the last month now. Is that a good "new" average ?

Due to the fact that there is not any enforcement to ensure that the 55 mph posted speed limit will be observed will result in no change. The dangerous condition that exists at this intersection will remain.

Highway patrol cannot be effective because they have to cover such a large territory. The county sheriffs dept has no primary jurisdiction because it falls within the Friendship corporate city limits. The city of Friendship does not have the resources to do this, or as some people claim that the mayor will not allow these resources to be utilized in such a way due to his policy of not issuing speeding tickets. No matter how you look at it brings about the same result - complete lack of enforcement. No enforecement = No adherence.

The only reason that TDOT supported the speed reduction is because such a fuss continues to be made about it. Not only the fuss but the fact that the fuss continues after it has been determined to be a dangerous intersection. This determination was the result of an engineering study conducted which clearly "warranted" (legally met the criteria for justification) signalization "and" physical geometrical lane modifications. TDOT has readily (albeit as quietly and informally as possible) acknowledged this fact. They have simply stated now that there is no money for such a project. The speed reduction tactic which they knew would be ineffectual was merely a ruse to attempt to dissuade any possible law suits that could arise from such a known dangerous existing (and ignored) condition.
Reportedly Gov. Bredesen had approved and funds were appropriated for this project. Delays immediately began from the TDOT region 4 project managers manipulations. This was due mainly as an effort to "save face" since they originally claimed it was not neccessary, without even a preliminary field investigation, much less conducting any legitimate "engineering studies". These delays ultimately lasted until Gov. Haslams policies of reducing spending removed all possible project support.

What to do ??? If you go thru this area - be careful. If you actually care then continue to "fuss" and vigilantly maintain your efforts. The wrecks and collisions will continue to happen as long as no effective changes are made. Perhaps future fatalities can be prevented. Let us only hope.

“Peace, Love, and Happiness”

People dont pay attention. I was coming through there at 55 the other day and people where flyng past me. It's not just people going down 412 but the people crossing need to pay attention also. I seen a lady go directly across the other day and wasnt paying attention and almost got Tboned by another driver going the speed limit. I wish people would pay more attention at that intersection. My husband brought up an idea that they should turn in into an intersection like at egg hill road.

There was another wreck today because a driver did not stop at the stop sign and was hit by on an oncoming vehicle. The speed reduction will not help drivers who simply will not pay attention.
