Is it too late to ask for lights?

Is it too late to ask why an old-fashioned traffic light wouldn't work?

Editor’s Note: The following is an open letter from the former TNRD director for Area A –

Mayor John Harwood and Council,

I kinda feel like the little girl who pointed out that the emperor has no clothes. Is it too late to ask why an old-fashioned traffic light wouldn’t work better for cars, trucks and pedestrians at Highway 5 and the Park Road?

It would be effective, less disruptive, safe and massively less expensive. Ahh, what the hell, it’s only taxpayers’ money.
