So two-way frontage roads may look OK on paper, but I can see this as an accident waiting to happen. I’m surprised the average driver is able to handle this since it relies too much on reading the sign and being aware of one’s surroundings. The person leaving the highway may not realize they are entering a two-way street, and the person on the frontage road may miss the yield sign or gamble with trying to make it through the intersection. It is almost like a legalized version of chicken.
