THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

By LeiLani Golden - bio | email

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) –A familiar green arrow has been removed from a Thomasville intersection without warning. Some people think it's an accident waiting to happen.

There used to be a permanent green arrow for cars turning right onto Old Albany Road from Madison Street at Carroll Hill.

Now, motorists are required to stop on red and use caution while yielding on green.

People in the area are concerned about the abrupt change and think it will cause harm in the form of unnecessary tickets or accidents from confused drivers.

"One of these days someone is going to run into the back of someone because they weren't paying attention," says Boone Felts, who owns the BWB Auto Sales located at the intersection.

"There's no real indication of what to do. No one knows what's going on."

Many people have suggested a yield sign at the intersection.

A white stop bar painted on the turn lane is now the only indication that motorists should come to a complete stop on red.
