According to a survey into Western Australia’s riskiest roads, the intersection of Pink Lake Road and Harbour Road has been named as the area’s most dangerous but many people have now questioned whether it is the roads or the drivers that are to blame for making the roads unsafe.

The RAC released its results from its 2014 Risky Roads campaign, which identifies the community’s views on the state’s most dangerous regional roads.

According to the risky roads survey results the reason the intersection was named the most dangerous was because of the difficulty in crossing Harbour Road to get to Pink Lake Road and the difficulty in joining high speed traffic.

Traffic lights were suggested as a way to improve safety at the intersection, according to the results.

However, the site was just one of many that Esperance residents deemed as dangerous.

The Esperance Express asked readers which roads or intersections were the most dangerous in Esperance and out of the 33 responses that were received, seven highlighted the Pink Lake and Harbour Road intersection as Esperance’s most dangerous.

Other dangerous spots raised by members of the public included Easton Road due to the lack of street lighting, Smith Street because of the no right turn, Mungan Street and Harbour Road due to fences blocking drivers’ sight lines in both directions, Arthur Street at the roundabout end because no one stopped to give way and the top of Arthur Street and Easton Road because drivers couldn’t see the vehicles entering the roundabout due to a hedge which blocks the view of drivers.

But some locals questioned whether there were any unsafe roads at all.

“Is it the roads or the drivers that are the problem?” one Facebook user wrote while another said “I haven’t seen any unsafe roads, just unsafe drivers”.

Police agreed.

Senior Sergeant Richard Moore did not think traffic lights would alleviate the problem and said drivers needed to follow the road rules, drive to the conditions and be patient.

Snr Sgt Moore said police had seen, on many occasions, drivers failing to come to a halt at stop signs at the intersection and he believed drivers would continue to flout the road rules even if traffic lights were introduced.

He said whether it was give way or stop signs or traffic lights, some drivers would ignore the warnings.

“We know that people don’t stop at stop signs,” Snr Sgt Moore said.

Meanwhile, Snr Sgt Moore warned drivers flouting the road rules would be caught and would be issued with infringement notices from police.
