Several people trying to get through the traffic mess on alternate routes that was caused by the closure of I-10 the other day have commented to me about the lack of assistance from our local traffic people.
They commented about stop lights that held traffic back when there were few if any cars coming from the perpendicular side of the intersection.
In this day of electronic communication couldn’t we have a system where someone or some computer changed the traffic signal controller to compensate for the massive change in traffic conditions?
Or maybe people could be dispatched to the intersections to manually control the signals to maximize traffic flow.
These situations are bad but measures could be taken to lessen the problems.
We deserve better
