LITTLE ROCK, Ark.(KTHV) - Highway officials said motorists attempting an illegal left turn at Shackleford Road and Financial Centre Parkway are causing wrecks.

"I think it's like a creature of habit situation," said Danny Straessle with the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department.

Straessle said for years left turns were allowed at the intersection, which is the state's busiest.

"We know that there are people that will do what they want to do," added Straessle.

Reports show last year there were 20 wrecks at the intersection, and at least three digital signson Interstate 630leading up to the intersection warn motorist of the prohibited turn.

Straessle said motorist can expect the prohibited turn, at least through the summer.
