Aircraft landing runway 5R turning off onto a perpendicular taxiway 'ie, A3' have to taxi into the middle of taxiway a before they are clear of the runway. Any aircraft taxiing to runway 5 will be head on to aircraft exiting the runway. I recommend hold short lines be moved to allow an aircraft to exit the runway and also hold short of the taxiway to allow taxiing traffic to pass. Callback conversation with reporter revealed the following information: reporter stated the problem has been brought to the manager's and airport manager's attention. With the extension of runway 4R new hold lines were painted to comply with runway safety zone. Reporter disagrees.
