ATLANTA -- Drivers in West Midtown, confused by recent lane striping, are turning the wrong way onto busy Northside Drive. 11Alive viewer Melissa Arceneaux has witnessed several close calls and has almost been hit herself.
It started after road crews striped the shoulder of one-way Northside to look like a travel lane heading in the opposite direction. After that, numerous drivers found themselves squeezed into a grassy median to avoid oncoming traffic.
Understanding the inherent danger, Commuter Dude immediately contacted the Georgia D.O.T., who quickly responded with a temporary fix to stop the insanity.
