Tuesday’s editorial hopes we’re one of the last to get the new traffic signal the state DOT is rolling out:
Imagine the following:
You pull up to the traffic light, ready to turn left across the highway. The light is red, so you wait patiently. At last, the cross traffic stops and the lights change. But instead of a familiar green arrow, red arrow or solid green light, you’re presented with a flashing yellow arrow. What to do? This wasn’t in driver’s ed, was it? Oncoming traffic is still coming. But there’s also a line of impatient drivers building behind you. Should you turn? Wait for another signal? Just push your way through traffic?
