BATTLE GROUND, Ind. (WLFI) - A woman in Battle Ground is ready to tackle the town's biggest traffic headache she says. A five-way intersection in the middle of town has been frustrating drivers for years.

It crosses over the railroad tracks and connects every route heading in or out.

Battle Ground mother of three, Dawn Greer, says that it's typical to see people roll right through the five-way stop.

"A lot of the people who cut me off, I should say, they tend to always not even realize they're even doing it," said Greer.

Greer said she is wanting to create signs warning drivers to be courteous.

"You tend to see a lot of complaints without any resolution, and I thought if I started the conversation out with a resolution and then got everyone else's opinion it may get us a little further," said Greer.

A local hair salon owner, Shauna Summers, said it has affected her business, Shauna Classicuts.

"There's a lot of horn honking, people getting upset with other people that are not taking their turns and of course, since I work right here, I can see everything," said Summers.

Summers says it is especially dangerous when school lets out.

"When all of the parents are coming through, when their kids are getting out of school, they just barrel right through here. I think they don't care. They just say, I'm here, and I'm going to go," Summers stated.

Battle Ground Town Marshal, Jerry Burk, said they have pulled over vehicles weekly for not stopping.

"Unfortunately, there's no ticket for being discourteous and not letting someone else through, but we remind them that they need to stop and wait," said Burk.
