    Why not place spikes, like the ones you find in private parking lots, to avoid someone from entering the wrong way !

  • Whether it is entering oncoming traffic in a crossover accident or entering the wrongway on a highway due to confusion between exit and entrance ramps, head on collision result in the highest number of fatalities on the highway. In these cases, most involve alcohol.
