Colac Otway Shire Council will consider replacing give-way signs with stop signs as part of an audit of a Colac intersection.

The council is instigating an audit of the Jennings Street and Armstrong Street intersection after two crashes in five months.

Senior Constable Matt Nauta said the driver of a Ford Focus, who had a passenger, was travelling west on Jennings Street when the driver allegedly failed to give way and collided with a Subaru Forester which was travelling north on Armstrong Street.

Sen Const Nauta said police issued the driver of the Ford Focus with a penalty notice.
