Running the lights on the Clarksville Memorial Bridge

I have been working on your bridge since late March. While many good citizens obey the speed limit and do not run the sinal lights when they just turned red, quite a few do.

These few know they can run the lights and catch up with traffic. But at what expense?

The lights are timed in a cycle governed by the overhead sensors thru a timing mechanism. When
the sensor "sees" a run thru, it delays passage of vehicles waiting on the opposite side of the bridge.

That's when people call Mecklenburg 911, and complain about the lights. Many times I have do drive in between both reds to catch one side or the other and verify the situation to the traffic Gods.

All because the new motto of your town is ME FIRST. Also , we have had near misses when the contractors people are working on the open side walk. Running the light can get someone seriously injured.

Please remind your citizens to drive safely at 25mph over the Clarksville Memorial Bridge.

thank you, Dave Dumais
