Another accident at the corner of South Street and the Princes Highway in Ulladulla has prompted calls for improvements to the busy intersection.
Police and ambulance personnel attended the scene of a two car accident at the intersection at 11am on Thursday.
Jenny Moore, who owns the nearby Coyote Boutique said the smash was one of six or seven that she could remember, along with many near-misses.
She has called for safety measures to be put in place to reduce the number of accidents at the intersection that has been the subject of investigations by Shoalhaven City Council and the Roads and Maritime Services .
“The problem seems to be cars turning south onto the highway from the western side,” she said.
“They are trying to get out in front of traffic that is going fast down the hill.
“It’s hard for people to see and the intersection is very busy at times.”
Jenny said Thursday’s accident was another example of a driver attempting to turn up the hill in front of fast moving traffic coming down.
She has suggested a ‘no right turn’ sign be placed on the western side of the intersection.
“Something has to be done before someone is killed,” she said.
“It happen so often and the town is only getting busier.
“Working in the shop, I hear bang after bang – it’s frightening.”
Council has previously said a roundabout could not be installed at the intersection due to the steep slope and lights have been given the thumbs down as well.
Noone was injured in Thursday’s accident and vehicles were towed from the scene.
