A MOST DANGEROUS INTERSECTION
One of the most dangerous intersec-tions in the county is at
Town LineRoad and Good Hope Road
. Countyand Village officials had a meeting onWednesday, April 21 to discuss the op-tions for improving the safety of theintersection. Most of the accidentsoccur as traffic stopped on Good HopeRoad attempts to enter or cross theintersection. Poor visibility of the trafficapproaching on Town Line Road con-tributes to the hazard.
