Several parents and law officers say it's a "disaster waiting to happen.”
Vehicles creating traffic gridlock as they prepare to drop-off and pick-up youngsters at New Brockton Elementary School.
But local school officials are hoping the state will step in with a solution.
A typical scene on any given morning at New Brockton Elementary School, private vehicles, and school buses dropping off students, motorists must continually be on their toes, at times, traffic backs-up to North Johns Street
Acting New Brockton Police Chief Dale Grimes directs traffic every morning and afternoon along North Johns Street. Grimes has asked the state to install a turn lane into the school, or at least install yellow, blinking caution lights.
Chief Grimes says he's asked state department of transportation officials for help, but he says nothing has been done at this point.
News 4 tried to contact an Alabama Department of Transportation official about the possible turn lane.
Our attempts to reach someone were unsuccessful.
