Description

I hear from friends and relatives that this has been a problem for years. Every week or two, I see some kind of rear-ending on this on-ramp. Tow trucks and police cars are constantly bringing traffic there to a standstill. One need only look at the shoulder of the on-ramp to see all kinds of smashed car debris -- taillight shards and bumper scraps. Even if you're not involved in an accident here, it's still incredibly difficult to wait at the yield sign and crane your neck far over your left shoulder to try and merge onto Rt. 9. Something's gotta change here to make it safer!
