A traffic light has been erected at the front of our housing development and I couldn’t be happier, although many of my local Facebook friends don’t seem to share my enthusiasm. Many commuters see it as another delay in already long drive to work.
I see it as a sigh of relief. When leaving our development you needed a prayer and a very heavy foot just to cross four lanes of traffic in the early morning hours or early evening hours.
Is another traffic light the right solution? If people drove the speed limit… if people adhered to basic traffic regulations…if people just practiced common courtesy when driving…if the county spent money on better infrastructure, then then maybe a traffic light wouldn’t be necessary.
Until that all happens, commuters will just have to except this eyesore forcing them to slow down stop.
They might have a revelation while sitting at a red light.
