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.

Defective Brake Pedals May Cause Serious Accidents

Imagine trying to apply the brakes on your new truck but the brake pedal is defective, loose or just isn't working at that moment it would be difficult to avoid a serious accident. General Motors is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and 3500 heavy duty trucks manufactured October 1, 2013, to February 1, 2016, 2015-2016 Chevrolet Tahoe Police Pursuit Vehicles (PPV) manufactured March 1, 2014, to February 1, 2016, and 2015-2016 GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 heavy duty trucks manufactured October 29, 2013, to February 1, 2016. On the affected vehicles, the brake pedal pivot nut may loosen, causing the brake pedal to be loose or inoperative. If the brake pedal becomes loose or inoperative, the driver may be unable to stop the vehicle by using the brake pedal. Additionally, a loose pedal may also interfere with the accelerator pedal. Either condition may increase the risk of a serious accident.

The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782.
