Has anyone tried to use the Hickory Grove Road, Oakland Parkway West and U.S. Highway 82/Georgia Highway 520 intersection in Lee County? The traffic is so heavy you need an armored automobile in which you cannot be hit by other vehicles or you hit them. You can spend as much as fifteen minutes waiting.

I have observed drivers taking chances that are questionable and drag racing the oncoming traffic. If Top Gear — U.K. or U.S. — states your car can travel from O-60 in 5.2 seconds, I have observe the driver’s attempt.
