The curve that this happened on is a very dangerous area on this road. There are no guard rails, and no warning signs posted that this is a hazardous part of the road. This road also is half under the City of Lawrenceville's jurisdiction and half in the counties, there seems to be no type of controls in place to keep the motorist speed down as I live on this road and most travel anywhere from 50 mph up to 60 or 70. Don't believe me? Come sit in my driveway. My drive is also hidden at the top of the road at Ashland Manor subdivision and I can't count how many times I have almost been hit pulling out of my drive or individuals in such a hurry that they have laid on their horn when I am pulling into my drive. The county and the city need to take heed and address these concerns. It is unfortunate that this young man lost his life when it most likely could have been prevented.

I live off New Hope Road where people zip along at 60+ per hour (except during Archer rush hours). Sensors and a warning light were installed to make turning into and out of our subdivision less hazardous - we've had fatalities and several less serious accidents. Even with the warning lights, I've been about hit as I waited to be able to make the left into my subdivision. It seems, speed limit signs and warning lights do not have an effect on those that choose not to pay attention to them.

It's tragic what happened to this boy. Hopefully signs and warning lights will someday be installed in an effort that no one else suffer the same fate, and hopefully, no one else will.
