How many accidents have to happen here, how many people have to be hurt before the town rethinks this intersection? Someone's bright idea really stinks and is dangerous. Brookhaven do something about this intersection. It's DANGEROUS! No matter which driver was at fault I blame whom ever thought this was a great idea! Just like these new blinking yellow arrows on Old Townes and Boyle Road. Accidents waiting to happen.
