    An accident or a collision? An accident could not have been prevented. Collision's are usually created by stupidity. Traffic lights cannot fix stupidity.

    There are frequent accidents at this intersection. It would be wise to finally install traffic lights here. I live in the area so know what's happening.

      traffic lights are not the solution to every accident. Improve driving habits or create roads that encourage traffic movement. Kenmount Road should have a meridian right up the center allowing left hand turns only at lights. Kemount Road is similar to Glenmore Trail in Calgary in traffic volume and that both are commercial areas. Coming out of Tims to turn left is a bad idea, or turning left from any business is a bad idea on Kenmount. But then again driving habits here prove people won't go out of their way to save themselves. If people could fit their cars inthru teh porch at Walmart they would park there
