What can we do about dump truck drivers on Route 53? I've nearly been hit several times by these drivers ignoring red lights on Route 53, particularly at the Enterprise Dr and Honeytree Dr intersections. Living here for a long time, I know there have been a lot of accidents and even deaths caused by this behavior. Just this morning, another truck just got in the median, blaring his horn while he ran a red light and almost hit me as I turned out on the green arrow. There were even other trucks next to him that stopped without any drama, so it's not like the red light "snuck up" on him.
This is such a dangerous habit, and nothing seems to be getting done. I've reported this to the police before, and sometimes they have patrol cars out, but it's still happening way too much. There is already a make-shift memorial on the side of the road at this particular intersection, I can only imagine from someone else killed by this type of activity.
What would it take to get red-light cameras? Or what else can we do to protect ourselves?
