    What is happening out there? I just read that another accident happened at 62 and Cty. Rd. 1, yseterday – sounded like a car ran the stop sign and collided with a north bound vehicle. The municipality needs ot get after MTO to improve these intersections.

    I was talking generally about ways of making our roads/intersections on 62 safer – not this specific accident.

    Reflectors ?? Didn’t this accident occur in the daytime ?

  4. Dennis Fox says:

    There are a large number of intersections along 62 that need to be improved. These “High Collision Intersection” signs do nothing to make things safer. In response to the municipality’s claim of not being able to do anything because 62 is a provincial responsibility, I suggested they contact MTO and request cheap cedar posts with reflectors at these intersections – highlighting the intersection and making night driving easier. If we have a MPP, then why not put him to work on a fairly cheap solution for a safety issue?

    This intersection is in dire need of a traffic cicle.
