  1. I work in the area and turn left from Sunset Lane onto Madison Road every evening after work. In the short six months I have work in this location I have watched numerous cars run through the red lights on Madison Road at that same intersection. I don’t know if the light needs to be adjusted or it’s a Law Enforcement issue that needs to be addressed. With this poor man losing his life there recently it seems like we all need to pay more attention. It happened today as I turned left out of Sunset Lane coming on to Madison road heading towards the town of Culpeper I paused as I always do at this intersection and a lady came through her red light on Madison Road and then turned into the Wise Market Shopping Center. It seems that she didn’t even realize what she had done.
