Why does the city not put traffic sensors in? Instead of letting it run on a timer?

Anything in this town that allows independent decisions.

If the light is "RED"...you have to "STOP"..."BEFOR E"... you turn right on red. You know, for public safety, and the Law Of The Land?

What is needed at this intersection is a pedestrian cross walk with walk/don't walk lights.

You think I'm clueless and nuts! How many times have you sat at this intersection and watched someone trying to cross 11W? You have a motel and the Justice Center on the hill and you don't think that maybe someone staying at the motel or waiting for court might want to walk to the park? Not every person feels the need to jump in their car just to cross the street. Some people actually enjoy walking. Maybe you should get up off your fat asses and try it.

I disagree! I've sat at that traffic light at 2 a.m., with NO traffic coming either way on 11w, and it took forever to change. It is NOT on a sensor.
hmmm

There are sensors, however the "thru" traffic for the four lane will engage the light longer. Now with that being said, do you how long 60 seconds is while waiting at a traffic light. When you trip the sensor at 2 am from Park Blvd, it will remain green for the four lane for approximately 60 seconds. Try two things for me, return to this light at 2 am, pull up to the light from park blvd and time it. Then note if no one is at the light coming from the Justice Center, that light will not change and it will immediately change back to green for the four lane. Really didn't mean to call anyone names a couple posts back!

Bulldog, I do agree, it should be mandatory to have a cross walk or maybe even one of those "pedestrian bridges" since the traffic is so heavy most of the day!
