Troubled intersection woes residents

Tampa, Florida --  Today we're featuring a story with one of our 10 News viewers who is frustrated about the problems he and his neighbors have been experiencing at Sheldon Road and Westwind Drive.

JB Fox has called the area home for more than 10 years and has watched the area grow up around him.

He's not complaining about the mall, restaurants or new neighborhood developments in the area, what concerns him is the lack of a traffic light at Westwind Drive. Right now, there's only a raised divider.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office tells 10 News it has seen a slight upward trend in accidents since 2007. By slight, we mean only one.

Here are the stats from HCSO:

2007: 5
2008: 4
2009: 5
2011: (so far) 3

The Hillsborough County traffic department says it is studying the intersection to see if a traffic light is needed.

What do you think?? Are there other areas that are in need of a traffic light??
