KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A 6 News viewer tells us she is concerned about a busy intersection in West Knox County.

Robin writes that the intersection of Middlebrook Pike and Cedar Bluff Road has several problems, saying "Cedar Bluff road going north has a left turn only lane and a "go straight/turn right" lane. Many times cars in the left turn only lane attempt to go straight causing many near accidents.."

Robin also points out similar issues southbound at the same intersection. She's asking, "Could the signage be changed to insure that drivers in that lane know that it is a left turn only lane? Or just make that lane for left turn or go straight?"

She adds that she has witnessed many near incidents there when drivers in that lane attempt to go straight when drivers in the other lane aren't expecting it.

We contacted Knox County about the viewer's concerns, and they tell us they will take a closer look.

6 News will, of course, let you know what they find.
