Growing Concerns For Road Safety in Snow Hill

Posted:

SNOW HILL, Md.- Cars are zooming by on Route 113. Traffic is steady as cars make their way to the intersection on Route 12. People in Snow Hill say this is a road to caution.

"That intersection right there has been a bad intersection for a few years now," said Regina Blake of Snow Hill. "A lot of deaths at that intersection or a lot of accidents."

Joe Walker of Snow Hill opted to walk around with his dog rather than drive. He blames the dangerous intersection on distracted driving.

"I think there's too many distractions on the streets with the radio and the cell phones and kids in the back," said Walker. "People are in just too much of a hurry to go somewhere and do nothing."

Improvements have been made to the intersection to help like a new traffic light, but some drivers are hoping for an overpass.

"A bypass would help that highway," said Blake. "It's new to some people because it used to be a one lane highway, so now they're putting a light there so some people don't know there's a red light there. They have to stop and wait their turn to cross over."

Others aren't so convinced an overpass is the answer.

"That'll take a while to do it and a lot of inconvenience," said Walker.

Whether for or against it, people say drivers should be more cautious."

"People have to be aware of when they're driving, who's behind them and who's besides them as well," said Blake. "You're not just driving for yourself but for somebody else."

"Slow down and be aware of where you're at," said Walker. "People got to realize look around it's more than just looking straight ahead."

Hoping to prevent more accidents from happening.
