    I drive the route from MC to CC everyday on the Avenue. Something needs to get done at the Floyd intersection sooner rather than later. I think the speed reduction from 65 to 55 helped some but it is still very dangerous from all the truck traffic entering the avenue from BP and Loves. I don’t know how many times I have had to break for trucks and cars trying to accelerate while entering the avenue. Get an overpass built before more good people get hurt. As we wait for action to take place a camera should be set up so that when an accident occurs again, and it will, we can fairly determine who is at fault. Yesterday’s accident was a very sad day.

      The fact this comment remains more than 24 hours after being posted suggests the worth of its host.

        I agree. It shows the host supports freedom of speech. You should move to North Korea.

        How do you rear end a semi unless you are distracted? And he was a local so he knew damn well this area is dangerous.
