What's called a "protected/permissive" left turn light has been installed at the intersection of Main and Ray streets, adjacent to the Rose Hotel and Oasis Grille.

I understand the need to reduce the back up at that intersection but is that the same system that has caused much confusion and many accidents at other intersections like Bernal and Vineyard?

Janet Pelletier, please let us know how much this system costs - equipment and installation. Thank you.
