It is a shame that the DOT has allowed Ga. 365 to become a killing zone because the intersections where side roads dump crossing and left-turn traffic onto a four-lane, 65 mph highway do not meet the criterion for a traffic light.

At least two people have been killed at the Howard Road/Ga. 365 intersection and at least one person has been killed at the Ramsey Road/Ga. 365 intersection.

How about at least putting up signs with a skull and crossbones danger signal with flashing lights at each of the four entrances into these intersections to warn the public of what they are heading into? This shouldn’t take a lot of study, just a willingness to act before someone else is killed.
