Danger at Harrodsburg Road double diamond

The Beaumont traffic area is road rage waiting to happen.

Why does there seem to be zero enforcement of traffic laws on Harrodsburg Road near the double-diamond intersection in the Beaumont area? Every day there are repeated and egregious traffic violations, particularly at rush hour. This happens like clockwork.

Should the police decide they want to enforce the laws, the city could make a fortune in revenue. It’s guaranteed that every day they could issues dozens of tickets for people running lights, blocking the intersections and otherwise driving recklessly.

Furthermore, continuing to ignore this major traffic problem will inevitably lead to some kind of road rage incident, if it hasn’t already. I have stopped driving through this area because it’s not safe, for a number of different reasons.
