IT is one of the busiest intersections in the city, and the site of a handful of car crashes in any given month.
The mixture of stop and give way signs on the corner of Pine St and Delacy St can lead to confusion and mayhem, with most accidents attributed to motorists failing to stop for oncoming traffic.
Long-time Tivoli resident May Britton said she had seen so many crashes at the intersection that she loathed driving through it.
Frustrated with the responses from Ipswich City Council and the Department of Main Roads, Mrs Britton decided to start a petition to lobby the authorities to take action.
She said it was only a matter of time before there was a fatality.
Mrs Britton said: "Some people really don't understand who is supposed to give way to who."
The intersection forms the main link between Ipswich and the northern outskirts, as well providing access to the Warrego Hwy.
North Ipswich resident Kylie Blanford said the intersection was also used as part of a rat run, which added to peak-hour traffic dilemmas.
Believing traffic lights are not the answer, Mrs Blanford has drawn a plan which she believes will solve many problems.
Her plan involves discouraging through-traffic flow from Delacy St straight into Tantivy St and she has passed the idea onto State Member for Ipswich West Sean Choat.
Mr Choat believed action was urgently required and said: "This is definitely the biggest project in the area as far as I am concerned now."
The petition has been left at the Caltex petrol station on Pine St, North Ipswich Pet Store, Downs Street Newsagency, Brassall Veterinary Surgery in Hunter St and the Tivoli Hill General Store on Mount Crosby Rd.
