The intersection of Henry Road and Eastern Bypass (also known as Veterans Memorial Parkway) in Anniston, Alabama has commuters and residents particularly concerned for safety. Since the portion of the Bypass opened, motorists have noticed the danger the intersection of the two major Anniston arteries poses and the startling lack of an acceleration lane to join the Bypass southbound from Henry Road.
The Anniston Star reports that 48 accidents at the intersection have occurred since February 2011, which averages out to about 1.6 accidents a month. Residents feel this number is too high. In addition to the high frequency of accidents, the speed of traffic is also of great concern, as cars heading southbound on the Bypass are coming down a mountain.
