Fix the dangerous northbound entrance ramp to the Dallas North Tollway at Frankford Rd.

This petition had 1,635 supporters

Please fix the flawed northbound entrance ramp onto the Dallas North Tollway at Frankford Rd. to ensure the safety of NTTA customers and their families. The current design of the Frankford Road entrance ramp is extremely dangerous—entering motorists are thrown into traffic coming at 65+ mph with practically no ramp to merge or properly accelerate into traffic. The problem is threefold:

1. Too Short: The ramp to merge into traffic is extremely short and practically non-existent;
2. Blind: The merge point is near blind -- because of the angle and a hill, motorists entering and those already traveling on the DNT cannot see each other until the last second;  
3. Point of Convergence: Traffic entering the DNT at Frankford is forced to make this already treacherous entrance (with little vision and little ramp) at a convergence point –they enter onto an "exit only" lane for George Bush Turnpike at the same time DNT motorists are changing lanes into this "exit only" lane to get onto George Bush Turnpike.  

There have been serious car accidents and countless "near misses" due to the unsafe design.  We beg you to please address the unsafe design at the Frankford Road entrance before there are fatalities—this is a serious safety risk that demands immediate attention.
