Description

Around 2 yrs ago, the poles holding the traffic signals at the CVS exit and at Prospect & Main Streets were replaced, placing these poles in a different spot. In so doing, the placement of the hanging traffic lights were different. The result is many near rear-end collisions (don't know if any have happened) and a lot of car honking. What happens when one gets the green light as they exit CVS parking lot and makes a left turn is that you are then, within approx 40'-50' facing a red light. This red light is meant for the cars going north on Main St but if you follow traffic rules, you stop at a red light. Those who follow the rule stop, unexpectedly to the car in back of it, and everybody starts honking for them to go thru the red traffice light - which is against the law. Usually, as the honking continues, the car moves thru it. Initially I notified the Town, the Police Chief, who referred me to the State Highway Dept, who in turn referred me to the person who was involved in engineering this configuration. Nothing was done, nobody really cares and it will continue - a dangerous situation and honking throughout the day.
