Traffic Lights Around Town
Original post made by Rob, Walnut Grove Elementary School, on Oct 12, 2007
Does anybody else notice the lenght of time when it comes to certain traffic signals? The ones' that stick out in my mind are Santa Rita/West Las Positas (by the hostpital) and Stoneridge Drive/Foothill (I think it turns into something else because I'm talking about the one right when you cross over to go up into The Preserves housingarea.) I have sat NUMEROUS times for minutes at both lights. People on other sides of the streets pull up and wait for maybe half a minute while I sat there for 2/3 minutes. Sometimes the one by the hospital is horrible. I have come home from a friends house around midnight before and have sat at the light for 5 minutes. I'm sure it's illegal, but I have backed and pulled foward, thinking I will trip the switch- does that even exsist? Overall I think safety can come into play, especially at night. Sitting at a traffic signal when it's dark and late can be kind of creepy. What is everyone elses thoughts?
