CAPE CORAL, Fla. - Neighbors are calling one Cape Coral intersection a "death-trap" waiting to happen. Their concerns center around the intersection at Old Burnt Store Road and Gulfsteam Parkway.
John Karcher has lived on Old Burnt Store Road for almost a decade. He's fed up with people who he says push the pedal above the posted speed limit. "Unknowingly the city has created a highway in our neighborhood," Karcher said.
Old Burnt Store changes from two lanes to one. Although there are stop signs at Gulfstream Parkway, Karcher and several neighbors say that's not enough.
They recently voiced concerns at a transportation advisory meeting, petitioning for another stop sign after a collision in the area.
"To put in a stop sign at the 4 way which will stop it. I've also asked the city to spend a little money on some white paint, and finish the bike lane all the way up to the end," said Karcher.
WINK News found out the city will be evaluating the intersection, and should have a report in about two to three months.
"We are just looking for a resolution to this problem before more accidents continue to happen," said Karcher.
