The problem with White Sands is those drivers wanting to take a left turn at the cut in the island that offers no left turn lane. The cut in the island is for cross traffic crossing the island.
The city needs tot re-evaluate the center island altogether or cut more left turn lanes in.
Reckon that's the trade off here in NM. In the big cities, simple solution, just place an intersection with a stop light every freaking city block. Stop-go stop-go that's all you do.

Here, I do love the fact that one doesn't have to stop every 50'-100' feet.

But as you all know, one of the worst aspects of this feature here, is the need to make the "dreaded" left hand turns. Seems that even when traffic isn't heavy, you'll often seem to sit and sit, as the "stragglers" go by, and in the meantime, you sit there growing a dang beard!

It's a compromise, these conveniences, versus higher safety, and as well the higher costs for more stop lights, stop signs, etc.

The roads-streets here might have been fine 10-15 years ago, but it seems apparent that Alamogordo's population has currently outgrown the antiquated street-road system here. That's one reason why it will continue to get worse and worse with accidents as the population grows with each passing year.
