Batesburg-Leesville, SC (WLTX) -- On any given day on West Hampton Street in Batesburg-Leesville the traffic flies, according to people that live on that road.
Pamela Oswald has lived off the street in the community for 15 years and in that decade and a half, she says she has seen at least 10 wrecks on her road.
Oswald said, "There was this bam, bam noise, and a big pile of dust, a big pile of dust in the air."
The most recent accident on Tuesday still has Oswald and her neighbors shaken-up.
"About 40 feet from the power pole where the car had hit it, there was a body of a man laying in the ditch," said Oswald.
Oswald said this was the first fatal accident in front of her home and the second wreck within a month, but she is more concerned about the potential problems of the traffic.
"You have schools buses that stop here, we have school buses that stop about a third of a mile and I have watched cars slide, slamming on brakes, sliding up to the school bus and I am just so afraid that one day it is going to hit the school bus," said Oswald.
She contacted the SCDOT about her concerns on a her road and is now looking for some changes.
According to Oswald, "I am hoping that the DOT can at least put up a flashing sign, a flashing caution sign to let them know that a school bus stops just around this curve and 45 mph is just too fast for this curve."
In the mean time, Oswald hopes that drivers will use more caution along her road in Lexington County.
"Please slowdown and read your speed limit signs, caution signs, we have lots of people that walk, elderly people that walk up and down this road," said Oswald.
She said, "We have kids, we have animals, please just slow down and acknowledge the signs."
According to SCDOT, the process for making changes to speed limits or adding lights does take time.
Once a request is made for a change along a state road, traffic engineers perform traffic studies to evaluate the location with respect to state and federal criteria to see if any change is feasible.
