ATLANTA -- Social media played an important role in the correction of a potentially dangerous reversible lane malfunction on DeKalb Ave.

On Tuesday morning, viewers texted and tweeted 11Alive Social Media Manager Julie Wolfe, alerting her that a series of reversible lane indicators were displaying red x's from Candler Park all the way into the City.

Even so, some drivers were still using the lane, creating the potential for dangerous head-on collisions. Julie alerted Commuter Dude who quickly contacted the City of Atlanta. 

Within a few minutes, the City had texted back saying that a repair crew was on the way.
