HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Bad drivers are on blast for making sudden stops at a busy intersection in Huntsville.The road is designed to keep the flow of traffic moving with little hesitation. 

Signs at Sparkman Drive exit 15 tell drivers to keep moving, but some hesitate trying to cross multiple lanes of traffic at once.The complaint shared on our website wants a fix to the traffic jam.

Alabama Transportation Department North Region Seth Burkett says the area has the proper signage. 

"We encourage motorists to not make any unnecessary stops there," said Burkett. "What we'll advise people to do is to proceed on into that additional lane, and then change lanes as they are able to rather than stopping there at the top of the ramp waiting for a break in traffic."

It comes down to drivers who stop as they wait to cross over into the far left lane. The configuration on the sign shows the proper flow of traffic. 
  
No major problems reported at the interchange, still Burkett says those unexpected stops could cause congestion during peak hours.
