  • Taking a look at the most dangerous intersection in Noblesville

    NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (Aug. 20, 2015) – State Road 37 is the most dangerous stretch of road for drivers through Noblesville. That’s according to crash data FOX59 obtained from the Noblesville Police Department dating back to 2012. “I think the thing they need to do is place police out there 24 hours a day.

    INDIANAPOLIS (July 30, 2015) – A lot of drivers were excited to see the ‘move over’ law go into effect on July 1.  The law requires drivers to only use the left lane for passing in order to keep the left lane clear.

The numbers are raising questions about whether the law is enforceable. State Rep. Jud McMillin was […]

  • Why is the speed limit 55 mph on I-465?

    INDIANAPOLIS, (July 16, 2015) – Most of drivers we talked to think the speed limit around I-465 should be raised above 55 mph. “I think it should be the same as any highway, 65. Sixty-five should be the speed limit not 55,” said Mike Thomas. Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) officials say 55 is the safest speed limit because of older design features that still exist around the loop. One example is the ramp of I-465 eastbound onto I-69 northbound. “Those tight […]
