Who owns the property that will benefit from the congestion that this will cause. The Mayor should have put the light up on North Main and Bohannon that he forced down a few years back.

Place your bets as to how soon the accident occurs because someone driving 11E did not SEE or EXPECT a traffic signal at that location and runs a red light at high speed.

You can't fix stupid, so I doubt the installation of these lights will result in less accidents. Greeneville drivers are the worst.

Can you clarify how a person benefits from traffic congestion?

Developers look for areas that are signalized. It improves property values tremendously. We even pay for them if the local county doesn't have the funding.

Word woman had web cams installed on them. Now she can see and talk to Greeneville while sitting in Asheville.

Thank you for the explanation. The wording was a little strange in the original post.
