Unlike my previous thread, this is life threatening and I have talked to St Mary’s County Sheriff’s department about this. In the last 6-8 weeks we have had 2 traffic deaths on Rt 235 from Hermanville Road to Ridge. I see another accident has happened this evening involving 3 cars according to the BayNet, though it doesn’t appear to be any fatalities. These accidents are happening in a rural area on straight stretches of road. This shouldn’t be happening here. As much as I don’t want to see radar enforcement in God’s country, something needs to be done as I have expressed to the sheriff’s office. As a resident who travels this stretch of road everyday, I have started traveling Rt 5 more and have encouraged my family members to do the same.

Unlike the 4 mile stretch from gate 2 to Rt 4, the deputies should not feel like they are as in much danger patrolling south of Lexington Park.
