CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) -- What do you do when you come to a fork in the road?
It all depends, which is why some viewers wrote to See, Click, Fix about a road near Carolinas Medical Center.
We took their concerns to the Charlotte Department of Transportation, and got some answers.
Brunswick Avenue is off of Kings Drive, just across from Carolinas Medical Center.
Shortly after you turn onto Brunswick there's a fork in the road, but there's never any street sign that tells you that.
However, there is a sign that indicates a sharp left turn, but Brunswick goes to the right at the fork. Edgehill Road goes left.
Often, as recent as last week, cars miss the fork to the left or right, and crash, or lose control," wrote one viewer to See, Click, Fix. "A sign with a double arrow visible, would let drivers know they cannot proceed forward, but must turn left, or right."
So we went to Charlotte department of transportation officials. We told them about the viewer concerns, and they told us their engineers would look into it.
They did. Although the answer doesn't provide the requested solution, we did get our viewers an explanation.
"In the last ten years, there is only one documented crash (2003)," said Charlotte DOT spokesperson Linda Durrett.
"Apparently, motorists have been able to navigate this intersection safely for the last seven years without any documented incidents," she said. "With the current budget concerns, CDOT will not be placing this situation in a high priority status for any future signage."
