What a Great Public Service Message. Is that the light that nobody uses their Turn Signal at?

Good Job CW!

That would be one of many that Villagers don't use their turn signals at.

And then when you lean on your horn because you almost rear-end them -- surprise! THEY are the ones who get P.O.'d.

Go figure!

As they should. If you almost rear-ended them, you were following too close.

I hope they do that at Morse and San Marino also. I can't begin to add up how much time I have spent waiting at that light over the years.

That would be nice too. I would also hope that drivers remember the speed limit is 30 mph from the Morse North Gate to the Morse South Gate. There have been many bad accidents on Morse north of 466.

A 4-way trip-light would've prevented the need for flashers.
