Description

On Broadway eastbound, it's very hard to see the traffic lights at Route 16.

The lights are on vertical poles at the corners, instead of over the road. So trees easily get in the way.

The flashing lights at the Foodmaster crosswalk up the road also distract drivers from the red light at Route 16.

On several occasions I've seen cars blast right through the red light, or do a panic stop when they saw the red light at the last second.

The DCR needs to install overhead traffic lights at this intersection.
