Hundreds of Accidents Occur on One Stretch of Road in Cobb County, Georgia
COBB COUNTY, GA. – According to a news report posted online at wsbtv.com, hundreds of vehicle accidents have occurred on one stretch of road in Cobb County, Georgia. More than 200 accidents have happened on a portion of Powder Springs Street in Cobb County in the last few years, and residents in the area would like to see some improvements made to the road.*
Since 2015, according to WSB-TV and data from the Georgia Department of Transportation, 228 traffic accidents have happened on a stretch of Powder Springs Street near Cunningham Road. Drivers in the area say that the road is unsafe the way it’s designed, and they would like to see Georgia DOT make changes to reduce the large number of accidents.
“Oh yeah, it’s definitely a mess,” said one person who drives through the area often. “Trucks and cars going too fast on this road.”
In addition to speed concerns, WSB-TV reports that many vehicles are trying to make left-hand turns through the stretch of road across five lanes of traffic on Power Springs Street. This creates numerous opportunities for crashes on the busy roadway. Some people who travel through the area think a median could fix the turning issues and prevent accidents.
It is unclear whether Georgia DOT plans to make any changes to the roadway at this time. A spokesperson from DOT reportedly provided information to WSB-TV that shows a slight decline in crashes on Powder Springs Street in the last two years. Still, residents are eager for improvements.
“It would be great to get it fixed soon,” said another driver in the area.
