New diagonal parking spots in Sabre Springs are causing major concerns for North County drivers.
The spots are located on Evening Creek Road in Sabre Springs.
Drivers 10News spoke with were concerned that the cars parked in those spots would take up more of the road.
"I think we're going to have some serious accidents here," said driver Pattie Dunayevich.
About a week ago, the city created the new diagonal parking spots. Before, only parallel parking was available and drivers complained there weren't enough spaces.
But now, there's a whole new problem. Drivers said the new spaces jut out into the road and pose a risk to people backing up and crowding oncoming traffic.
"This is dangerous, and if you notice, there's not even enough room for a car to get by," said Dunayevich.
On Tuesday, the city moved the yellow double line about three feet over to give traffic more room, but drivers said it's not enough.
Many cars were seen driving on the yellow line. One driver had to use both lanes to back out and in some cases, some drivers came so close to cars it set off their alarms.
Right now, the speed limit on the road is set at 35 miles per hour, but some drivers suggest bringing it down to reduce the risk of a crash.
"Speed bumps or something like that, that would probably help," said driver Dan Moneybenny.
10News spoke to the city about drivers' concerns and was told the idea was already reviewed by traffic engineers who concluded the plan didn't pose a danger and no changes will be made.
Those who drive the road everyday said the engineers should reconsider before someone gets hurt.
"I think they need to go back to the drawing board and look because it's not working," said Dunayevich. "There's going to be an accident here."
The city told 10News they take all complaints very seriously and would consider changes to the road in the future if drivers continue expressing concern.
