For many decades the perilous intersection of Dulaney Valley Road and Seminary Avenue has become increasingly more dangerous. There have been multiple fatalities and scores of very serious accidents. All of us in the surrounding neighborhoods have heard of or witnessed terrible accidents mostly resulting from speeding northbound vehicles on Dulaney Valley Rd. To date and despite the request of politicians in the past, the Maryland State Highway Administration who is responsible for Dulaney Valley Rd has felt that additional safety measures are not warranted. The only solution offered was to install a revenue producing red light camera as a deterrent. Recently another tragic accident happened with a graduating senior headed off to swim in college.

Those of us in the Hampton/Pot Spring/Towson/Seminary Avenue communities implore the MD SHA to consider the following:

1. Immediately make the left turn lights North and Southbound on Dulaney Valley Road Solid Red/Yellow/Green Arrow lights as opposed to the current situation where cars can proceed left on yellow and risk being broadsided by cars either running the red light or potentially speeding up to make the yellow.

2. Find a long term solution possibly with a roundabout that would not only calm the excessive speed on Dulaney Valley, but also prevent horrific turning and speed related accidents at the intersection of Seminary Ave and Dulaney Valley Rd.

3. In addition, consider the solution along with the intersection of Pot Spring and Dulaney Valley Roads. Many drivers have noticed that when traveling down the hill Northbound on Dulaney Valley Road just prior to Seminary Ave, if the light at Seminary is red but the light at Pot Spring is green, it can be an optical illusion where one may see thru the red light at Seminary and just see the green at Pot Spring

The Pictures above are from just a few of the accidents in the last few years. Please MD SHA, do something before another life is lost or another life is forever altered by injury.
