When in the world will people realize that that curve is DANGEROUS?? Slow your butts down! It's mostly people coming away from Belair Rd that lose control. I have lost count of the accidents that just I have seen, I know I've missed more. When the road is wet, it's a good day when someone doesn't slide off into someone. I hate going around that curve, especially when it's raining. The recently installed flashing lights I doubt are any help, except maybe to someone not familiar to the area. I've asked about maybe some ruts be put in the road that will break up the water on the road,like places on the side of the road to alert you that you are moving off the roadway. No answer.
