As a transplant from the north where traffic congestion is just a way of life. I am surprised that these dangerous intersections on 27 have not been eliminated. when it was a two track road to nowhere 20 years ago these intersections were not a problem but with the high speeds and heavy traffic of today they should have been rerouted and eliminated years ago. but to our representatives at the highway commission I say dont worry its not a big deal its just peoples lives at stake.

Well, Bob, I suggest you go back up north, obviously a much safer region to drive. Around here, the roads don't cause accidents...people do.
