Myrtle Beach, SC -

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – If you've ever made a left into the direction of the Kroger shopping center while turning onto Carolina Forest Boulevard off of US-501, you may have felt uneasy.

"When you're trying to make that turn you're inching out trying to see if there's any cars coming and the bushes totally get in the way," said Emily Johnston.

Earlier this week, there were illegal signs posted all along that same median. A viewer wrote to SeeClickFix asking for help.

"You want to see what the sign says and you're trying to quickly read it when your attention is on anything but the road, you're asking yourself to get in trouble," Johnston said.

But after we made a call to the Horry County Department Planning, the next day they were removed by workers with code enforcement.

"I actually noticed that there weren't any signs there anymore because I'm focusing more on traffic and not what all those signs on the road are saying," Johnston commented.

Stephanie Jakub added, "If the trees weren't in the median it would be much easier to turn."

The director of the Horry County Department of Public Works says they might be close to being too high and will check things out.

"If they weren't there you'd be able to see a lot better if there's cars coming and if your safe to go or not," Johnston said.

    There's a federal push to crack down on an herbal supplement called Kratom, a botanical substance that grows naturally in Southeast Asia. Some states are working to ban the substance the Food and Drug Administration claims has similar effects as opioids. The FDA also recently re-issued a statement on Kratom, saying it presents a significant risk of exposure to salmonella. The FDA classifies Kratom as an opioid, claiming it has "opioid-like qualities."
