  • People need to stay off their phones. I was taught to drive and that your full attention is given to the task at hand. You are moving a two ton weapon at 65 MPH. You cannot be talking on the phone, texting , putty makeup on , eating your lunch. You are the driver the only thing you should be doing is DRIVING. That taks takes 100% of you attention. If you are driving DRIVE.

  • It’s not all the Northern drivers that are causing the accidents, If they were able to drive all the way down here without having an accident .It’s the locals that lack the skills to drive safely it’s the morons driving the pickups and SUV’s that tailgate and are in such a rush and half of them are driving around with no insurance and suspended license’s. So then why is it when the snowbirds go back up North are there still so many serious accidents here, It’s the locals that are the problems but home grown Floridans don’t want to admit that. The county jail is filled with all local lawbreakers not snowbirds. All drivers have to pay attention to how they drive and also have respect of other drivers on the roads, Don’t speed, Don’t tailgate and use your signals when changing lanes and there will be less accidents. I’d like to know just how many of the complainers have ever lived up North and driven on the area highways and local roadways, Sure there are accidents but not nearly the amount of serious accidents what occur around here everyday. Why do you think that your auto insurance is so high around here, It’s because of all the automobile accidents all year round

  • The new turning lane for Hexam blocks the view of oncoming cars now when turning onto 19.

  • 19 Commercial Way has become a war zone driving. This winter has brought more snow birds down than the previous 10 (my opinion) and these drivers have left the rules of the road back North. No, don’t look before changing lanes just do it.
    All of this bad driving coupled with all the construction work is keeping Real News busy.

  • People need to take personal responsibility for their driving. Put down the texting, phone calls, food, drinks, and the list goes on. I drive that area everyday and have no problems.

  • We saw this one. It was horrible looking. Saw the lady standing on the side of the median with her dog. We thought for sure someone had died in this one.

  • so what i do to avoid this turn is go to the next left which is about 1/2 mil south. my daughter freaks out on me when i do this but i feel it is safer. I KNEW as soon as they built that dollar general that would be it. i hate to say this but it is time for a light there. how many more accidents until they put one up? reminds of south florida it took a death of someone on a motorcycle to put a light up by our house. i hope they are smarter than that for the sake of our children and families. please if you live this area write the dept of transportation and tell them we need a light there. god help our children driving prayers sent to the families

  • the driver of the Corvette was transported by a family member to the hospital. the ambulance would not allow her precious dog to accompany her so she had to wait for a family member to take her to hospital.

  • As a fellow jeeper, I send my prayers to both vehicles! 0[][][][]0

  • theres not enough fatalities there to justify a light unfortunately thats what they go by.

    Friday, 20 March 2015, 9:50 pm
  • my prayers are with them please people slow down stay of the phones and watch everyone around you

  • So sad-prayers going out! This intersection is horrible during peak times. You have people headed south 19 and turning left onto Hexam and then you have people leaving Hexam and trying to turn left to go south on 19. Both people turning are trying to watch the 60 mph traffic for a break and trying to share the little turning spot. If anyone judges someone’s speed wrong or both people try to turn left at the same time…there’s gonna be an accident. I’d hate to see a light that held forever or changed constantly though…maybe only one with sensors that will only give a red light to 19 if there are people waiting to turn left. (And not hold for friggin ever-just enough time to get 4 or 5 cars out.)

    • I have seen so many people blow through that stop sign… I always slow down when approaching that location because of it.

  • us 19 is the worst road to drive on anymore . there’s one accident on it everyday so sad

    Friday, 20 March 2015, 8:45 pm
  • We need a light please.

    Friday, 20 March 2015, 7:18 pm
    • Yes! Definitely a light is needed there because I’ve seen too many people blow through that stop sign as if it didn’t even exist.

      Monday, 23 March 2015, 9:38 am
  • My prayers are with you and the family
