Description

I am a commuter into Chapel Hill Monday -Friday almost all year round. The ramp exiting east bound I 40 has always been challenging at certain times. I completely understand that there are difficulties with how to make that intersection work smoothly during high traffic times. But in the last couple of weeks it seems to be worse.

For the past couple of days I’ve commuted while in line to turn right onto MLK only about 3 cars at a time have been able to turn and fit in the lane without blocking the intersection. For the past couple of days I have had drivers behind me in the queue drive around me to fill up the intersection so when traffic begins they are in line. The only this is accomplished is by them pulling into the intersection blocking both lanes.

I know there may not be much that can be done but perhaps a little traffic enforcement there would be helpful. Concerned about potential accidents !!
