Dalton Woman Fights for Traffic Light at Site of Husband’s Death

By Grant Law Office on March 28, 2012

After losing her husband in a Georgia car accident at the intersection of Piney Ridge Road and the South Dalton Bypass in Dalton, Georgia recently, a Dalton woman is fighting to have the city install a traffic signal at the intersection in order to protect the lives of others who travel through the area, according to a recent article in the Dalton Daily Citizen.

The family began pushing for a traffic light at the intersection several years before the Dalton man’s untimely death. They became concerned when their daughters began attending Southeast Whitfield High School located across the bypass from their house, which meant the girls had to cross through the intersection every day in order to get to and from school. The family says that a hill leading up to the intersection makes it very hard to see what traffic is coming, and that at least two other accidents in the intersection in recent years have led to serious injuries or deaths.

Despite the family’s initial push to get a traffic light installed at the intersection, however, city officials told them that putting in a traffic light would “defeat the purpose” of the bypass. Not long after, the Dalton man died when his vehicle was hit by a truck traveling through the intersection. Now, the man’s wife and family are dedicated to preventing a similar crash.

Road conditions, including a lack of proper traffic signals and signs, can cause or contribute to serious accidents.
