High Accident Area. I just witnessed my 4th car accident since the roads were narrowed along Oglethorpe, because it is now almost impossible to check for inbound/outbound traffic when pulling onto Oglethorpe from the side streets of the housing area located on Oglethorpe. By the time you have pulled up enough to see past parked cars, your almost sitting in the road. Something needs to be done, or accidents are going to continue to happen. This is a very high traffic area due to its location to schools, the hospital, and Mercer. I mentioned studying “speed” but really that’s not the problem (though some is) the issue is visibility.
