Frustrated with city traffic

To the editor:

The traffic lights in this city are deplorable, plain stupid. Does anyone in traffic control take time to drive around the city to see what the hell I am talking about?

Direction arrows are not long enough for turning left onto busy Harvey, too many cars are left waiting for the next light, hence pollution. Every street with lights crossing Harvey should have a left directional signal, it’s plain common sense.

The HOV lane is a joke. Three times I was almost hit as I came out onto the HOV lane and at the same time a fast speeding car from the centre lane decided he was going to turn right and switched lanes coming straight for me. Some people think this HOV lane is for speeding seeing no one is in front of them.

I get real angry when I cannot go through the green light at Cooper as the cars waiting for the red light at Dilworth are backed up to Cooper.

Wayne Harris,
