DEBRA Hale is sick to death of seeing carnage along Lake Road.
She is calling for the Port Macquarie-Hastings Council, motorists and businesses in the area to do something before someone is killed.
Mrs Hale works at CNW Electrical and Data Supply on Lake Road and believes she has witnessed up to 15 accidents at the front of the business in two years.
The latest casualty was a young woman on Thursday.
“I was out the back and then I just heard a great noise,” Mrs Hale said.
“I didn’t want to go out the front because I thought someone would be dead.”
A young woman crashed into the rear of another vehicle, leaving her with minor injuries.
Mrs Hale admitted she did not know what the answer was to curb the rate of accidents, but said a change was needed before a life was lost.
She has even taken the drastic steps to keep her family safe by requesting they not visit her at work.
“It’s a nightmare every afternoon in particular,” she said.
“I’ve told my mum and daughter not to come to my work because there are so many accidents, we’ve even had them happen in our driveway.”
She said there were a number of options the council should look at to help ease the traffic chaos.
She said the flow of traffic could be changed by making tributary streets such as Blackbutt and Chestnut roads no right hand turns.
Instead, motorists would be forced to make a left hand turn before being able to turn back around using the Jindalee Road roundabout.
Another option, Mrs Hale requested council consider, was lowering the speed limit in the industrial area to 40km between 4pm and 6pm.
“It would be similar to a school zone and they could set the flashing lights up to warn motorists,” she said.
Mrs Hale said she was considering starting a petition to see something was done about the issue.
