Seems Like A Dangerous Place

The Update has a pic of a wreck in front of Allsups on 287 in Decatur. I never have liked traffic pulling onto the highway like that (or having to slow down on the highway to get in there.)

yes, that is a very dangerous area.
hopefully, stimulus bill will take care of it.
seems to be working pretty well everywhere else.

How are they going to fix it 3:07? Put up signs that say LEARN HOW TO DRIVE?

The report is confusing as usual but I think she was merging onto Southbound 287 and pulled in front of the SUV. That on-ramp is dangerous also because of the hill being a blind spot and people not knowing what the yield sign is for!

In most situations, it is important to have the fact straight. While the area in front of Allsups may be dangerous, this incident occurred on the southbound side of 287 when the driver was getting on 287 coming up the ramp near Exxon.

Why thank you, Matlock.

That place is the most dangerous place! If you are headed south on 287 and want to turn up (off 287) to Sherwin Williams, you have to CRosS the entrance ramp and juggle for a place between those who are coming ONTO 287 from that entrance ramp by Exxon. Very very bad place!

Every place is a dangerous place to pull out when you have your head up your ass.

And even worse now that the road just ahead of there has the left lane closed and everyone merging to the right lane?

You are welcome, booze hound.

Who is the genius that wrote that confusing yet so informative blurb? I guess I wouldn't put my name on it either...

You people must not get out of WC that much if you think that this is so dangerous...

Going to Sherwin Williams and merging is a problem for you? Take 51 and use the turn lane...

Jeeze people, learn how to drive and merge.

Oh and when the automakers put blinkers in the cars, it wasn't just a suggestion that you may use them when it's convenient for you...

How in the hell do you exit an on ramp?

Well, 9:33, you haven't been down 51 lately, have you? Trying to turn left ANYWHERE is dangerous. It is so crowded that I'd rather take my chances on 287.

You people who think that driving ANYWHERE in Decatur is dangerous might want to get out of town more! Or just learn how to drive.

Oh, 8:52, I do know how to drive and I leave town quite frequently for the big city. Driving there makes me grateful that I get to come home to Decatur. I realize that traffic is nothing like the Metroplex, but then again, that's why we live here. not there. Nice to visit..........

Yes 8:08 I drive down 51 daily as a matter of fact.

Maybe you could take some weekend courses on growing a set, but then again you sound female so there just may be no hope...
