HAMPTON COVE, AL (WAFF) - It only took about a minute for someone to say. "You must be here for that blind spot." It's in the parking lot of the stores that are behind the relatively new Chick-Fil-A at Hampton Cove.
"People tend to cut that corner a little fast at times, and if there's a car coming from the other direction, it could get ugly,"said Michael Byrne, who owns the Mail Pro in the shopping center.
There's a blind spot there because of the bushes and the dumpster. Byrne says the bushes and dumpster have been there for probably 20 years, but the increased traffic from the Chick Fil A next door is now making that blind spot more of an issue.
"What makes it worse is if someone comes in a large truck, they have a tendency to park right in front of those," said Byrne. "So then, when people do cut the corner, all of a sudden they're greeted with a big GMC logo in their face and have to swerve around it."
Byrne says he's mentioned it to the landlords several times, and they've looked at it. He thinks maybe they could move the dumpsters to the back of their building where there's some room.
"Or even if they could stripe it to make it look like a street out here because it's a little bit of a free for all," said Byrne.
We're still trying to track down the landlords to find out what their plans are, if any, or if anything *else can be done. Stay tuned for an update.
