    This is the most dangerous intersection in our area. The cars in the right lane don’t pay attention, the cut people off to get in the left lane and there are never any cops there to issue citations. When they reworked this area they should have made all cars in the right lane turn right at the stop light or built a concrete median so people had to turn after the stop light. The engineers really screwed up here. Must be the ones who engineered the roundabout at 12th and Horizon.

    This intersection does suck but if you are going westbound everyone is already in the left lane getting prepared for it to drop to one lane past 22 rd. If you are coming from 23 rd onto 6 & 50 headed towards the mall no-one lets you in there. They make you go over the speed limit just to get into the lane or make you stop in the median and wait for traffic to clear up so you can merge. i drive this everyday to and from work and am surprised there are not more accidents here.

    I hope those involved make a full recovery.
