WORST INTERSECTIONS: Make sure you vote in our poll to help us find the Clarence Valley's worst intersection.

WHENEVER we ask about shocking intersections in the Clarence Valley, the Iolanthe St and Spring St crossroads in South Grafton always rates a high mention.

But it's the intersection of Prince and Victoria streets that makes me feel like I am taking my life into my own hands every time I'm driving through it.

Cars sneak forward from the Victoria St entrance because they can't see vehicles approaching from Prince St.

I don't even bother trying to drive through there now. When I approach the intersection coming from the direction of Roches Hotel, I just turn left and then use the roundabout to get where I am going.

After we put the call out on Facebook for the worst intersections in the Clarence Valley and why, five were disliked far more than any others.

Make sure you vote in our poll and stay tuned for the our story in the print edition later in the week.

Which of the following is the Clarence Valley's worst intersection?
