what is with that friggin' light that seems to be on a 2 minute timer. is it really necessary to even have that light there? the fork and hoe has been closed for years and i can't imagine the knight spot ( although good) gets enough buisness to warrant such a delay in traffic going east or west.

just hold out, Obamacare will eliminate those elderly diners who cross Main Street so slowly on their walkers & canes... When they are no longer with us, they won't be dining at Knight Spot - light gets changed to regular timing - fair & square.(That wasn't a shot at the elderly, that was a shot at Obamacare)

There is a certain someone who resides in that vicinity who has decided that Frankfort needed a petition to have that light turned on in all directions. They took it upon themselves to tell us that we don't already spend enough money for fuel in our vehicles and that we need to sit idly in front of her house for extended periods of time. Now, not only are we all forced to sit there, but for long-time Frankfort residents (something she is not) who are unaccustomed to stopping there, accidentally blow through it all day long causing even more of a hazard for those with the green light coming off the side street! She'll regret her decision after the first fatal motor vehicle accident. I have never sat for so long at a light in my life nor have I ever seen so many people drive right through a red light. Good luck with that.

For those that do stop at the red light: Please don't clean out your ashtray while you're stuck there. She probably hates to see cigarette butts in the street.

Who is this "she" do we have a name and how does she have enough influence to have a traffic light installed or say how long the timer should be?

There was a petition to turn that light back on? So, evidently, there were enough people who signed it for the village to turn it back on. So maybe there is a safety issue there after all (and it's not people blowing through the red light).

I'm going to go back to my 'conspiratorial' opinion because some of the garbage on here sounds like it is coming from someone working for the village or was told by someone who works for the village that there was a petition. And I'd have to assume that they are not in favor of having the light. I'd be more interested in knowing who does not want the light working than who wants it on.

Is there a safety issue at that light? Yes there is. When cars (and especially trucks) are parked on the eastbound side, to the west of the light, there is no visibility to see on-coming traffic and drivers have to pull out onto main street just to see if something is coming. That makes no sense and itís not safe.

I can understand people being aggravated with waiting a long period of time for a red light. The real issue is that it should not be that long in the first place. There must be some way to adjust the timing. Now here's my conspiracy: RV is probably one of the people who does not want the light working and set the timer long so that it would aggravate people and they would get pissed at the people who want the light on instead on getting pissed at Vivacqua for poor timing. I said that before and now people are on here talking about some woman who got a petition going. How predictable. Why don't you complain that the light be operated in a sensible manner? Of course, someone is going to have to tell Vivacqua what that is.

No. The Scottish Rite Freemasons evolved from the remnants of the Knights Templar after they fled France so it's not one or the other. And the Freemasons tried to create order, like American democracy, and, of course, have nothing to do with St. Francis Clubers creating disorder in Frankfort. C'mon, get your conspiracies straight.

Cars park on the street around Knight Spot and it's hard to see around the corner if anything is coming. The light is needed.

Alright, alRIGHT !! I hate traffic lights. I'll be the first to admit, I want to blow through them every chance I get. There, I admitted it. So, one day (yesterday) I decided to time how long I have to sit at these lights. 30 SECONDS....sometimes 40 SECONDS !!!! OMG, has my life become so busy, that I cant sit for 35 seconds in one spot? How sorry for me. I won't complain so much anymore.
I'd feel too stupid of me.

Nobody wants to be stuck at a red light on Main Street in Frankfort... but if you're on the village streets you'll see drivers stopping their cars- not even pulling over, having a 2-5 minute chit chat session. Singin' O' Lord - Goomba Yaw! Someones drivin' my lord - GOOMBA YAW!
