I was travelling south on Monument Rd Friday 10th May 2:30 pm approx. in excellent driving conditions. As I approached the intersection with Tourist road a car travelling east on Tourist Road at highway speed (at least 100 kph) went straight through the compulsory stop missing me by a second or so. I believe had I been slightly earlier I would have likely been killed as the car would have hit my side at 100kph. I know that work has been done to improve the intersection through additional signage and road markings (and I am grateful for that)but I believe this to be a notorious and particularly dangerous intersection. My family of five drivers travel through this intersection several times a day to and from home and I fear for our safety. Please could further work be considered? This could be a roundabout or at least removal of the boundary hedge (in part) so that drivers on Monument Rd heading south could have more visual warning to avoid such incidents. Thankyou for your assistance.
