Yes I am familiar with this junction, familiar enough to know to take care at it. If people find it difficult to deal with the challenges that such a junction present to you as a driver, then you need to avoid the junction and find a different route, maybe take a left onto New Antrim St from Tucker St instead of coming down the New Line. In the 1980's I worked in the petrol station at that junction, with cars coming into and leaving the forecourt from all directions and never saw an accident. If anything, it was a far busier junction back then as it led to what was the main N5 at the time (Turlough Road) but drivers took responsibility and didn't want to be spoon fed with directions and signs. The great trait one of my teachers in St Gerald's tried to instill in us, "COP ON", is sadly missing from everyday life anymore.
