Eight Mile headache

THE notorious Eight Mile intersection is still causing concern for drivers, despite previous work to make the intersection more user-friendly.

Warwick and District Road Safety Group chairman Graham Buchner said he was concerned by drivers not stopping at the Eight Mile.

"I went to Brisbane last week and saw the same semi-trailer fail to stop at the stop sign both times I passed through the intersection," he said.

"What do you do with people like that? The law is there to be obeyed.

"We have done certain things which make it clearer for users but people need to be observant and obey the rules. I have no problem with the Eight Mile itself, just the people using it."

Mr Buchner said a day at the intersection would be very profitable for the police.

"Every day you see people who don't stop at the stop sign," he said.

"At $310 and three points each time, the police could make a fortune out there.

"They would need a few notebooks, there would be that many in day."

Vice chairman David Kemp also said it was an issue.

"The number of times you see people go through the stop sign is definitely a concern," he said.
