  • I call it beat the light. The intersection going North from Woodbury to Montana down the Lincoln Ave Corridor is a death trap. I have lived in this area for over 20 years and driver’s don’t slow down. The timing mechanism is off centered and most people traveling either west from Montana or North on Lincoln will use impossible speeds to beat the light to get to their destination. Unfortunately it has caused multiple accidents in this area especially at Lincoln and Montana. No one pays attention to the speed laws even when posted, something has to be done about this before a fatality happens.

  • No surprises here…. Boyleston was first recommened for a stop light to control traffic movements in “fast food hell” on North Lake nearly 30 years ago…. So when is this data on traffic accidents going to be presented to the Transportaton Advisory Commission? Does the TAC even bother to review these kinds of issues and make recommendations on solutions back to the City Council anymore? Or is the TAC just a rubber stamp for whatever staff tells them they want them to do?
