Florence police warn about dangerous intersection

MUSCLE SHOALS, AL (WAFF) - Florence police are looking into a dangerous intersection on Hough Road and Mall Road intersection. Authorities say a lot of accidents happen on the intersection and they want it upgraded to a traffic signal.

Lt. Chris Ticer said the road is congested and many drivers are driving into this busy intersection, but they're taking a risk.

"A lot people will get impatient waiting at the stop sign and they will pull out into traffic trying to beat the other vehicles many aren't looking both ways before coming into the intersection," said Ticer.

Ticer said he has seen many accidents that could have been prevented if a traffic light have been place.

Florence Mayor Steve Holt said the city is working to have a traffic signal installed by next year.
