Downtown Traffic

Traffic in Richmond sucks generally, but downtown really sucks. I think it's mostly the traffic lights not being timed correctly. The one on Main and Third turns red when there's no one coming from Third-either way! On top of that, it goes through the entire cycle, including the turn lane when no one's turning! There's also a turn lane light at Main and Second, but at least it's needed there because of traffic volume at that intersection. Does anyone else see this(Commissioners/Mayor)? Also, DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE DAMN RAILROAD CROSSING. We are so behind times!

I used to live in California. The worst traffic here doesn't even come close to the best traffic there or in a number of other cities I've lived in. Downtown Richmond is a breeze, especially after they repainted the lanes.

Uh, excuuuussseee me! This ain't California, dude. It's a medium sized town with outdated traffic control devices and it's fairly irritating, especially if you've got a small bladder at rush? hour.(Please, no comments about my small "member"), but I'm sure you probably will. LOL!

We used to not have this problem. We had two lanes going each way, and one could turn left from the left lane if one desired too.

But we got people in control with no education and they allowed the powers that be to make the road 1 lane each way, with dedicated turn lanes.

Now since those turn lanes could be used to go straight, the two lane system was far better.

This can be seen as an example of why alcoholics should not be in decision making positions.

The train is the biggest problem we have. It stops the entire downtown and backs up traffic forever. But I agree about the lights too. The one at Collins and Main gets me every morning and I'm the only one at the intersection.
