DRIVER'S BEWARE: One resident believes drivers need to be more careful when using Drayton St.

AFTER yet another two vehicle accident on Drayton St, this time involving a truck and a car, one resident is calling for drivers to use more common sense.

Lisa Southern, who has lived in Dalby all her life, said she believed the drivers were at fault for most of the accidents that happened on the road.

For Ms Southern, the answer is simple - people need to change the way they drive, before there are any changes made to Drayton St.

Her comments come after an incident last Thursday morning at the intersection of Drayton and Marble Sts.

"The drivers need to be more patient instead of being in a rush to get everywhere," Ms Southern said.

"A lot do roar down there … they need to put in more cameras to catch the idiots, everyone keeps slamming on their brakes but the streets don't warp out."

The general community consensus was an extra set of lights on the eastern side of town was the solution.

It would break up the traffic flow up and slow down drivers but Ms Southern said adding lights would simply going to add more traffic.

"There is already a lot of traffic at peak times, it might take you six or seven goes to get through," she said.

"With more lights there is more traffic. But I do feel for the ones at the south school, it's hard to cross the highway - so fair enough, something needs to be put in place.

"What's more important, getting there fast or getting there safely?"
