Good afternoon Mayor,
I drive a lot around town all day, and at night especially. For some reason, I feel like the traffic lights don’t sense my car and end up waiting really long for it to turn green for me.
I was wondering if you would consider making some of the traffic lights flashing after 11pm. Examples Williams & Prospect, Sunset & James, Sunset & Central, Cross & James, etc. I understand the larger intersections wouldn’t work, but I did go to school in Edison NJ where they do switch a bunch of smaller intersections to blink, and it’s great.I would really appreciate it if you can take a look in to this.
Response from Mayor Coles:
I sometimes have the same problem. I’m not sure turning them to flashing after a certain hour is the solution. I think we need to make sure the cameras and other sensing devices are working properly. Please get back to me with some of the intersections that give you the most grief, and I will have them checked out to make sure they are functioning properly.
