Let's see how fast those signs get put up if one of the city seat holders loses a relative or child. 30 years I been in Lawrence and that turning issue has always caused injuries and deaths. Fix it Idiots!

Of course....if a car is stopped in front of you, you could always stop instead of hitting it.

This intersection is worse than those on 23rd just west of Mass St where no left turns are allowed at certain busy times. The problem here is all of the students commuting to the University from apartment complexes take these turns as shortcuts to the parking lots. Either outlaw the left turns or widen the intersection.

FlintlockRifle, I completely agree. Please do not attempt to make left turns on to Iowa from either Stratford or University. Use either 15th or Harvard road. It is a rule with all members of our family.

Oh no not again.

Hopefully Iowa street will be widened soon, so that there is a left turn lane available for all the dangerous intersections.

There really is no other solution, because so many people simply don't notice when there is a car in front of them.

That is a bad intersection, should be a NO LEFT TURN, just a couple blocks north is a stop light to let you turn left in a turn lane
