    Glad to hear this young man is recovering and also glad to hear that nobody else was hurt. This road has always been a frequent accident spot. I actually do my best to avoid exiting Jennings Rd especially when heading West.

    The way the road is designed along with the bank and brush from the adjacent property makes it nearly impossible to see traffic approaching from the Verdmont Road area until its too late. I used to also rely on listening for oncoming traffic but todays electric bikes and twizzies are so quiet and small its difficult to see them.

    Please W&E take a look at this road and see what can be done to redesign it so that it is safe to exit, before someone else gets hurt or even worse.
