Sign, flashing lights the answer to intersection

 


To the Editor:

I use the Section 12 Road-U.S. 2 intersection every day, usually several times a day. I can attest to the fact that many vehicles drive through after the signal turns “red.”

Going north on U.S. 53 out of Duluth, Minn., there is a caution sign with a set of yellow lights before the traffic light at the intersection of Ugstad Road. The yellow sign says, “Prepare to stop when flashing,” and its yellow lights flash to warn the driver that the traffic light ahead is soon turning “red.”

It’s my opinion the addition of a sign and lights like this is an answer to a dangerous intersection.
