My family and I moved to Harrisonburg about 5 months ago. Since moving here, we have noticed several bad accidents happen at the intersection of Pear Street and Erickson Avenue. I believe that these accidents could have been prevented if there was a traffic light in place. It is very difficult to turn onto Erickson Avenue from Pear Street, due to oncoming traffic coming from both directions. Coming from Russel Drive to Pear Street, it sometimes takes over five minutes to make a safe turn. If a traffic light were in place, these issues could undoubtedly be resolved.
