If you don't come to a complete stop at the end of the Route 50 exit ramp at 339 it could cost you.

A lot in tickets or your life.

Lt. Carlos Smith from the Ohio State Highway Patrol says 339 is definitely one of Washington County's most dangerous roads.

There have been multiple accidents off that exit ramp, including one fatal.

In the 10 minutes we were out there more than eight cars whizzed by either coming to a rolling stop or no stop at all.

For Allison Cline, the law's the law.

"I don't live very far from here and I haven't heard about very many wrecks here," she says. "But if they're ticketing people for not stopping, it's a rolling stop and I think that's the law, so people should stop because of the stop signs."

Cline says it could reduce the number of accidents but at the same time, not everyone's going to listen.
