Dangerous Intersection

The dangerous intersection near Nease High School will be getting reduced speed zone signs while they continue to wait for a stoplight. Parents and concerned community members first requested a stoplight in 2011 according to the Florida Department of Transportation records. Sadly, the Nease High School intersection has been the scene of six Auto Accidents in a year the most recent left two teens seriously injured. Three of the six accidents resulted in injuries. The high school is located in front of a very dangerous intersection in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. School officials, parents, students and concerned community members have requested a stoplight be installed to protect students from speeding drivers and to help them navigate busy traffic as they turn onto the highway in front of their high school. Florida Department of Transportation has agreed to place reduced speed zone school signs at the intersection until a stoplight is installed. While the date for the stoplight has been moved up several months the actual installation may not happen for a year. This is no doubt difficult for parents to understand as they worry about their young drivers. Students, parents and school administrators are voicing concern. Two petitions have been started in hopes that the installation of a stoplight will be moved up before more accidents occur at the intersection. Links are below for two of the petitions.
