It appears that the only way to stop the accidents in this area is to lower the speed limit in this section and enforce it. People just refuse to slow down even when they know how dangerous this small stretch of highway is! Is it not worth 15--30 seconds of their time to possibly prevent a bad accident? They were having this same problem at the intersection near Algood until they started enforcing the limit through there and now you rarely hear of a wreck there.

OK! Guess there is no way to make people pay attention or slow down through there then!

Could they close off most road crossovers like in White County?
They could build access roads. Too many people have died on that Highway. I think 15 people died before it was changed from 2 lanes to 4 lanes during the construction periods. Several more have died since. This is a shame.
btw - Nice to see you yesterday friend.
The colorful fall setting made for a beautiful drive dont you think?
I wish you well !

The accident last night wasn't at a cross over. It was just after you top the hill. That whole stretch from the top of the hill to the flee market is dangerous so maybe the speed limit should be lowered.
I knew they flew the male, Josh Ledbetter, out but was unaware the female was flown out also. Thanks for info.

Foam rubber cars 10 mph speed limit, someone would find away to kill themselves or someone else. Then what?

It was good to see you too! It was a very pretty drive home. I actually went to Cookeville after I saw you and came back home on 111. It was extremely busy from the flea market all the way to the new Dollar Store and everyone was absolutely flying. Such a dangerous place!
Take care dude!

Come on...Lets keep it real. Fiberglass/Plastic cars and trees,semi trucks,concrete structures,etc. don't mix at any speed let alone at a high speed. Lets just use experience and a little common sense and slow down a bit. Do it for yourself if not for others out there.
just want to know

Even if they lowered the speed limit to 55 people will still pull out in front of you or try and shoot across the road in front of you. I mean the speed limit is 65, so at 55 the people will think oh I have more time so they will wait til you get even closer then pull right out and BAM!!!

111 is absolute hell on earth. I drive it daily, and just this morning, the morons were doing 70 in the 40 mph zone, and then when it was time to come up to speed at 65, they had decided to go 60 in the 65 zone. Then, when you catch them and start to pass they, you'd think they were at Bristol on the short track trying to keep you from passing. People just drive like absolute idiots. I don't get it.
yep
