Letter | Take out traffic lights
July 30, 2012 · Updated 3:38 PM
On Wednesday, July 25, all the traffic lights in the Mercer Island town center were not working. This was during the noon/lunch hour.
It was such a pleasure having those unnecessary traffic lights out. Traffic flowed smoothly and quickly as it had in the past when we only had stop signs on those corners. People were polite, and no one was held up and delayed unnecessarily.
To have the costly lights, which only cause more traffic delay, is a waste of time and money.
We suggest Mercer Island remove the lights entirely or have them turned off permanently.
