I-Team Investigates: Wrong way drivers & near head on collisions on city street

Confusion on some one way streets in downtown Birmingham

Viewers reached out to ABC3340 News Consumer Investigator Cynthia Gould about safety concerns around the 22nd Street South bridge heading towards 1st Avenue South. They tell us they see drivers headed up the one way street going the wrong way by mistake constantly. They worry about the potential for serious head on collisions.

We took video and brought the issue to Birmingham City Hall. The street department quickly assessed the situation and added more signage. Hopefully the extra warnings for drivers will make the area safer.

Anytime you see signs missing or believe an area is dangerous, notify your local city street department.
