Woman sick of 'dangerous' Toowoomba intersections
A WILSONTON woman is at a crossroads as she fights for safer roads.
Lynden Day said constant incorrect use of the intersections along Bridge St and the Warrego Hwy endangered the lives of Toowoomba drivers every day.
"I'm sick of almost having accidents daily. It's a dangerous road," she said.
Ms Day contacted the Toowoomba Regional Council and Department of Transport and Main Roads to report the issue.
"Both parties are saying it's the other one's problem so I'm not getting a resolution," she said.
Ms Day called Policelink to clarify the road rules and is now rallying "people power" to seek a solution.
"The way that people are supposed to use an intersection is to go up to the 'keep left' sign and then turn right, which I've had confirmed," she said.
Are intersections in Bridge St dangerous?
This poll ended on 03 March 2017.
This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.
"But people are turning in front of (the sign) to oncoming cars and they're not coming all the way forward so people can't turn behind them, or they're coming straight across and going past the one-way sign.
"This is something everyone is complaining about but no one is doing anything about."
Ms Day has family members with young children who hate visiting because they're scared to use nearby intersections.
"If people don't know how to use the intersection properly then get more signage," she said.
"All people need is two arrows on the road so people know how to use the road."
The Toowoomba Regional Council said the road was the Department of Transport and Main Roads' responsibility.
The Chronicle yesterday contacted the TMR for comment.
