I am writing a proposal argument on returning the caution light to the intersection of highway 210 and 470 at Wesley Meadows church. Anyone who agrees please send your comments to me and i also need an up to date figure as to how many wrecks and fatalities there have been there since the caution light was removed

I would like to submit this proposal and perhaps begin a petition to return the caution light to this intersection.

yes, the caution light should certainly be r eturned; if you need to the number of accidents that have occured there since it has been removed I would call the Sheriffs dept.

I drive that way home everyday and I have seen people come close to pulling out in front of traffic. I hope they put it back.

the way to solve this problem people is to stay off ur cell phones and pay attention to the road and traffic...there is alot of sight distance both ways...anyone who cant see oncoming traffic shouldnt be driving anyways

I agree this would helpto rduce the wrecks, but people should not driv=nk and drive, people should always wear seat belts, all of these help to reduce #'s of wrecks. TRUE!!!!!!! But returning the caution light helps to bring attention to the area and could help to warn on coming drivers of the intersection and make them awareof any on coming traffic and stop signs.

i do agree, but there are big stop signs posted plus i believe stop ahead signs, not to mention coming from white city end, it has the warning rumble strips....this intersection is no different from any other one in larue county, so why should it get special treatment, just because it has the caution lights when the old road was there...

Probably because the majority of fatalities at this intersection is increasing due to the straight stretches and people not paying attention. I am sure there was a reason to put it there in the beginning and with the perfected road work the need should be stronger...How come you personally don't want the caution light back. I live very closer to the intersection and have 150 signatures on a petition that state their is a major need for the caution light. I am not sure how many signatures I need to bring attention to the subject but I will pursue till it returns !!!!!!!!!!

If you're coming from White City or Leafdale Rd, there are rumble strips, but they're way too far from the intersection. There should be another set of them closer to the stop sign. I'll sign the petition.

Thank you, for your comment, i live in this area and I seen so many accidents whether it be from carelessness, drunk driving, not paying attention or maybe hust a freak accident but point is if the caution light is returned it brings attention tothe driver. to slow down, Just like if you meet on coming traffic and they flash there head lights at you several times, caution, something ahead is wrong. Police officier, deers, wreck. once again thank you

this has been brought up before about putting the light back, and the answer to it was there is enough sight distance...thats all im saying

could you explain the distance that is needed to avoid all the accidents maybe it will save some lives.

like i said, all i know is when the new road was built, thats the reason the lights werent reinstalled...

the way to stop accidents and save lives is people need to pay attention...it has nothing to do with the road, the ones coming off 470 need to pay more attention to whats going on...all people today are worried about is getting to wal mart and talking on cell phones.
