Thursday morning a petition circulated online calling for a traffic signal at a crash plagued intersection in Wesley Chapel. 
Here's the problem, Eiland Blvd runs north to south with a posted speed limit of 55 miles per hour, but those waiting to turn left or right from a dead stop off Handcart play a constant game of cat and mouse with rush hour traffic.
Dick Crawford, HOA president of the nearby Oak Creek Community points out debris from past wrecks, plastic bumpers still in the roadway.
"If you don't step on the gas quick enough, your going to get blasted."
Pasco County officials say they will have to initiate a traffic study at that intersection in order to determine if it qualifies for a traffic signal.
