There are four contributing factors that make U.S. 278 a very dangerous highway: following too closely, changing lanes without safety, failure to yield right of way and excessive speeding above the posted limits. These factors create the perfect scenario for serious accidents, and will continue to do so, especially with heavy traffic in both directions. The solution is obvious -- greater police presence, coupled with stricter enforcement of traffic laws.
