This is a VERY dangerous intersection.A car pulled out in front of me six months ago. I had to jam on my brakes. It was a very close call. I hold my breath every time I pass this death trap.

I agree the intersection is dangerous, even with the flashers added a few years back. I live less than a mile from this point and hear sirens weekly. The storage buildings that were built too close to the road is a problem.

unfortunalty more people will probably die before the county engineer figures out how to fix it.

It doesn't seem to me that age was the cause of the accident. He failed to stop at a stop sign.

I live near a fairly busy intersection in the Falls. I see cars run the stop sign all the time. Most keep driving, not even slowing which tells me they didn't even realize the sign is there. Luckily it is a 4-way stop, so most make it without causing an accident.

Every driver should be required to retake the test every 8 years.
