Too many accidents and deaths are happening on I-24 between Exit 7 and the Bridge !!!!!!!!!! I would like to see a flashing sign that alerts traffic...such as speeding out of towners......to SLOW down........speed limit in this area is reduced to 65 .......but nobody slows down !!! If we start stopping speeders and collecting from the tickets..the city could purcase and operate some type of sign !!!!!!!!!!

Nice thought, but we still have a convention center debt that we have to try to "recover". That's a joke. Lol. You have to understand, if it makes sense to you and I, then it doesn't make sense to our wonderful leaders. If it isn't difficult for the rest of us to understand, then our political leaders don't want any part of it. Common sense is lacking hugely when it comes to the decisions that are made for this town.

I'll step off my soap box now lol

Amen, ok and of course common sense is lacking in driver's also because they are too distracted by everything these days.

Already electronic signs in place operated by the state. But they usually only have normal reminder stuff. Like Click it or Ticket.

Or you can not be a puss and be cautious of the traffic around you.

City would spend 50,000 on a flashing sign like this if they was asked to. , CAUTION HOMOSEXUALS and QUILTERS. CROSSING, AHEAD.

The really bad one happened because the traffic was stopped due to construction. I am not sure speed had anything to do with any of the recent wrecks

Totally agree Yed, it is called too many people not paying attention to their own driving. Oh wait, my cell phone is ringing, I better answer that while I am driving. I don't like that radio station-I better change it or put a different CD in while I am driving. I need to finish my sandwich while I am driving. I have seen women put on makeup, drink coffee, talk on the cell phone and smoke a cigarette, and yes, all at the same time. I don't mean this to be ugly but to me a flashing sign would just be that more distracting and cause accidents. How many people are really going to pay attention to that?

A sign will do nothing but become another distraction. There are already too many distractions.

Somebody is SPEEDING! Somebody is talking on the phone! Somebody is on drugs!

Nobody on here has any idea what caused the accidents referenced here. Let's just knee jerk react and lower the speed limit, outlaw cell phones, or any thing!

Ever think that it might be the existing lower speed limit that is causing wrecks? Everybody driving along at 75 and then suddenly somebody slows down to 65.

Just a thought

What good would it do to lower the speed limit anyway? It's not like your car stops gaining speed when you hit the limit. A small percentage of the drivers on the interstate actually go the speed limit. You could lower it to 40mph but people are still going to drive 80. A sign is not going to slow people down.more accidents will eventually get people to slow down and be more cautious.
