Children

using children chasing a ball as a reason to keep the light is stupid. the child will chase the ball regardless of who has the green. a suggestion (it will be disapproved because the Silly council did not think of it) is to install a "4 Way Stop" what a unique concept, Stop, LOOK, then go. I also suggest that the Silly council get the money to keep the light out of their own pockets, not our tax dollars. Yea, right.

WOW

Nothing like city council thinking they are smarter about traffic then the engineers at DOT. Ask the citizens on Church Street about the traffic light helping slow down cars in their neighborhood.They asked for the light and in council's wisdom it was approved and not long after it was installed the same citizen's were back before council asking for the light to be removed.Cars were speeding up to beat the yellow I believe. Please let the professionals do their job.There are always going to be unfortunate incidents, lets work with the statistics to try to minimize accidents for everyone.
