I would just like to know who is the brilliant person who set the traffic lights in Fayetteville? It takes them forever to change!!! This ain't Huntsville, and we're not covered up with bumper-to-bumper traffic. So what's the big idea???

If you are at the light from 64 on either side then you might have to sit through 2 or 3 cycles. It's ridiculous!!!

Worst traffic light has to be in front of the old" racheals resturant".entering 231/431 from hwy 110. You can be the sixth vehicle from turning towards town and if just one person in front of you is slow to move when light turns green, then you can bet on sitting through another cycle. VERY FRUSTRATING when TIME is not on you're side!!!!!

Traffic engineer in Huntsville said he would have done the job for 5000 and no one would sit through 2 changes.

The light between Walmart and Taco Bell is the slowest I've been stopped at. If you are trying to get out of that shopping center turning left you better expect to wait about 20 minutes before you can turn.

as last week's EVT stated, I think the worst is the light at Washington and Main Street in front of FBC. Paper states the longest you will wait at that light is 90 seconds; well apparently, the 4 minutes I timed sitting there was 90 seconds to them. arrrrrggggggggggghhhh. thanks for making my morning commute even more stressful!

I agree. It is far more than any 90 seconds. I was beginning to think the light was stuck when I was headed north recently. There was no car ever going east or west at the time I waited.

All the lights are ill timed. Only way to protest is to take your business to Huntsville or Tullahoma and avoid the Fayetteville square. City leaders don't seem to care either way. What a way to squander $82,000 with so called traffic engineers...

There was a study done by state at all lights to adjust the timeing. They have all been reset and are set to requirements by law. I am not sure but i think the walk signs that have been put in several years ago requires a certain amount of time and this causes a longer wait. If i am incorrect you can check with the city office and they can give you the full details to the study that was done to correct the problems to a minimum by state laws. Also some lights have been adjusted to caution lights during late hours. Again your best bet for the correct information is to call or go by city office to get the final results of test.

The lights on, and around, the square should be blinking red from 7pm to 7am.

Mr. Honey , There are no "laws" regarding timing of traffic lights, only recommendations. Timing for pedestrians can be obtained by the push buttons on the control unit poles. What the City of Fayetteville did was wasted tax money and frustration of the citizens. This can be corrected at the next election...

I can't believe the City spent $80,000+ to set the timing of these traffic lights! It's a joke! If they say it was ADA requirements then why do Americans with Disabilities only cross East and West? Unbelievable! If you cross North and South you better have your Nikes on! A turtle could cross East West! College and 64 is by far the worst then Washington St. City loves to writ checks with your money for crap we don't need! Last I checked these were hard times...

I agree. The light at Washington street and north main is ridiculous.

Why does any of this surprise you? You people vote the same people in to office all the time. Next election everyone should have one rule, don't vote for anyone who has ever held office in this town. It is time for change and voters are the one who can make that change. They can't do any worse can they?

WalMart @ Taco Bell is the worst. Plus, people are not careful about weaving in and out of he turn lane. Its crazy.
