  1. What’s going on in Lillington, Lots of accidents, Maybe more Troopers needed to patrol the Highway for speeders and wreckless drivers.

  2. This hwy should be 4 lanes . Two in each direction with a middle turning lane. This would eliminate unsafe passing. Slower vehicles would most likely use Slower right lane. The police are needed for speeders using the passing lane for excess speed.
