I have been visiting relatives in the Sperryville area for holidays for the past five years. I am told of how Massies Corner, where you get from Lee Highway to Front Royal, has had a high number of car accidents. I think I know why.
It is because the view, when you arrive at that corner from Front Royal, is so beautiful – so beautiful it is dangerous, because the natural instinct is to watch the beauty when you should be watching the road.
I suggest they put up a sign, “Danger – Beautiful View.” I really think this will reduce accidents, especially for people who don’t live around here and are not aware of the natural beauty distracting the driver.
