More Horsham residents are voicing their concerns about another maligned Natimuk Road intersection, with one person concerned a motorist will pay the ultimate price.
Amy DeGruchy said the Natimuk - Bennett Road intersection was too dangerous to cross, leaving her to reroute her trip to avoid it.
Ms DeGruchy, who lives on Natimuk Road, has Stargardt disease, making her legally blind.
She said she purposely avoids the intersection due to the dangerous driving and lack of vision-impaired facilities if she wants to travel to the city centre.
"Cars just don't know how to approach it. They don't know where they're supposed to turn or who's supposed to go," Ms DeGruchy said.
"So there's always accidents nearly happening. I can't go across that part of the road so I have to go around the back streets and try to get into town that way because I can't drive obviously."
Ms Degruchy has almost been hit a few times while crossing the intersection. Often drivers get confused and have to brake quickly, making traffic flow unpredictable.
Stargardt's disease affects both her and her brother. Visual aids like glasses are unable to assist her vision impairment.
She said that she and her brother require sound and visually impaired facilities for crossing the road, which the Natimuk - Bennett Road intersection lacks.
"We walk and listen, and that's how we get around. So with traffic lights, we listen and that's how we can tell if it is safe to go," Ms DeGruchy said.

"I don't think it's safe.
"With the skate park also being at the end of the road, I think it's just a massive hazard."
Horsham City Council Mayor Robyn Gulline was asked whether the council had noted the problem intersection.
She said Natimuk Road was a Regional Roads Victoria road, not directly administered by the council.
"Council will refer the concerns that have been raised to Regional Roads Victoria," she said.
Regional Roads Victoria was contacted about Natimuk Road and said they were monitoring how the road network was performing.
"Any upgrade to our road network is based upon a range of factors, including crash history, strategic use and traffic volumes and types," a spokesman said.
The Natimuk - Bennett Road intersection was also noted as a problem intersection in Horsham City Council's Horsham Urban Transport Plan in 2020.
The intersection was listed as a potential site to install traffic lights, to "improve access for all road users, and to accommodate traffic from future growth areas south of the Wimmera River."
Currently, no works for the Natimuk - Bennett Road intersection have been announced.
Other problem intersections along Natimuk Road, such as the Natimuk Road - Gardenia Street intersection, and the Natimuk Road - Kalimna Avenue intersection have not been included in the plan.
Natimuk Road has been the site of several safety concerns from Horsham residents.
Horsham Council has committed funding to certain sections along Natimuk Road, but residents said the intersections with Kalimna Avenue and Gardenia Street remain dangerous.
