If they have known this WHY has nothing been done. The setting is perfect the area has no LIGHTS...HEY how about put some street lighting in.Know matter where you live theres always that AREA that has to many accidents ect.. until someone dies they do something about. Either light the area up put in Signal lights stop signs speed bumps ect. So people do not blame this on your county its like this everywhere. Peace

There's a serious problem with drag racing on 210 ( Indian head highway). It would be nice if police monitored my area more.
