Four-way stop should prevent accidents

NC DOT hopes to decrease accidents with new four-way stop at busy intersection.

The intersection of Prospect Rd. and Saint Anna Rd. is now a permanent 4-way stop. The North Carolina Department of Transportation decided the traffic volume, along with a history of accidents made the change crucial. The all-way stop is a low-cost form of intersection control. The DOT expects a decrease in both the amount and severity of vehicle collisions. Students were alerted to the change in an email at the start of the semester.
