Bonny Hills resident Peter Rodgers wants the speed limit around the Ghost Road and Pacific Highway intersection to be reduced to 100 kilometres per hour.
Mr Rodgers regularly travels the road and highway and says he has witnessed too many near misses and collisions.
He says a move to reduce the speed limit is a simple thing to do.
"I am appalled that there is an awareness that this is a dangerous intersection but something as simple as reducing the speed limit has not been done," he said.
"If you travel the Pacific Highway at all, you would no doubt be aware that there are many sections of the highway where the speed limit is reduced where there are intersections.
"There have been accidents at the intersection. But we shouldn't have to wait for someone to be seriously injured or killed before we do something."
Mr Rodgers said vehicles waiting to turn onto the highway have a dangerous wait.
He says cars turning north from Ghost Road have traffic almost on top of them as the come over the crest of the hill.
"And if there is a vehicle turning from the highway and left into the road it actually blocks the view for vehicles waiting to turn.
"There is no way a B-double or semi trailer would be able to stop in time.
"We also have school buses using this intersection - twice a day sometimes.
"It is just horrific to consider what would happen if someone just doesn't see the oncoming traffic," he said.

Mr Rodgers says the decision-making for vehicles turning left onto the highway is not much better.
"There is no slip lane heading south. So a vehicle has to turn and pick up speed to that 110 kilometres per hour," he said.
He has raised the issue with Port Macquarie MP Leslie Williams.
While he accepts there is scheduled highway upgrade works planned, he is calling for some action in the interim.
"At some point in the future, that section of the highway will get an upgrade but there is no time frame for that.
"But I've always maintained that it would be an easy move just to slow the traffic to 100 kilometres per hour north and south of the intersection.
"My view is that we just can't risk it. Any collision would be high impact.
"Just imagine if a bus is turning right and it stalls with a B-double coming down the highway," he said.
Leslie Williams’ office has confirmed a meeting with RMS was scheduled for late on Tuesday November 20.
