The Business Highway 71/23 and County Road 24 intersection problem needs to have a significant flaw addressed.

Drivers attempting to cross the Highway 71 racetrack are hindered by literally dozens of metal road signs impeding a clear view of oncoming traffic approaching at high speed on a curve. From day one I commented that this intersection's odd visibility issues combined with high-speed traffic was a disaster waiting to happen.

Clearing many non-essential signs from the area and lowering the speed on Highway 71 would make for a much safer situation. That would require someone to admit they made a mistake; but it would be cheap and simple, yet afford needed access for the neighborhood.
