Description

At this intersection, the left line turns left and the other lines are suppose to proceed straight. However, drivers in the middle line always veer over into the far right line. Drivers assume that the road only becomes one as you cross over in front of the Shrimp Boat. For the safety of pedistarians and drivers the lines in the road need to be painted and enhanced similar to the paint at Florida Ave NE and H Street NE ( approximately 1431 H Street NE ). The turning lane and the non turning lanes are clearly marked. The same upgraded markings are needed at this intersection.

I frequent this intersection and have almost had several accidents do to the lack of road paint to keep the middle lane drivers proceeding in their line. Drivers assume the middle and right merges and become lane. This is a very dangerous intersection and I am concerned for my family safety every time I drive through it.
