I read with interest the April 17 opinion article, “Warning needed at dangerous intersection.” I drive from Greensburg to the Ivy Tech campus and back three times a week. My route takes me through the intersection of County Road 450N and State Road 9.
On one particular day, I was feeling rather tired, and before I knew it I had driven right through the stop sign on 450N. It startled me awake, and I was grateful that there were no cars in the intersection at the time.
One of us would not have made it through the accident that would have occurred had we collided.
I believe rumble strips would have alerted me to the stop sign I was approaching. Surely, the cost of this solution would not be prohibitive. Please keep us informed of this issue.
And thanks to all the Columbus area residents and business owners who plant beautiful flowering trees and shrubs. Driving through Columbus in spring is a true delight.
