A number of residents just west of Elmwood have complained about a rural intersection.
Concession 10 and sideroad 30 has been the scene of several fatal collisions -- and Brockton is taking steps to make it safer.
In the last six months -- four significant collisions have occurred at this intersection, the most recent one claimed the life of a local high school student in June.
Local resident Cheryl Leifso know all to well about the dangers of the intersection.
In November, her husband Brent was seriously hurt in a crash and is still recovering from a head injury after someone ran a stop sign and broadsided his truck.
Residents describe this section of highway as a "speedway" especially during the morning commute.
Leifso says something must be done to make it safer -- and she believes a hill on sideroad 30 only adds to the problem.
Leifso presented Council with a 50 name petition from neighbouring residents calling on Council to take action.
She suggests a flashing light and rumble strips would make the intersection safer.
While Council considers this request, the municipality has agreed to turn the two way stop into a four way stop using oversized stop signs.
Leifso calls it a positive move.
Paul Ahrens is also pleased with Council's action.
He too was recently involved in a crash when someone ran the stop sign and broadsided his vehicle.
