THE BRONX - Intersection confusion has some Bronx residents saying they risk an accident every time they drive near East Fordham Road and Webster Avenue.

The city's Vison Zero website indicates that the intersection is a danger zone.

There have been at least 20 reported injuries near East Fordham Road and Webster Avenue so far this year.

The Department of Transportation says it banned left turns off of Fordham Road in 2013, but it's hard for drivers to know that because there is only one marking indicating you are only allowed to go straight on Fordham Road.

There are no signs indicating you cannot make a left turn onto Webster Avenue from Fordham Road, leaving many Bronx residents frustrated.

The Department of Transportation says it has plans to make pedestrian crossings safer at the intersection. News 12 has reached out to the department to find out if there can be more signs put up as well.
