LETTER: Not Impressed By The New Flashing Yellow Arrow Signal

Recently, the road department, with seemingly great ceremony (and lots of service trucks), installed yellow flashing arrows at the corner of Greenview Shores Blvd. and Wellington Trace. It seemed like a good idea. Motorists seeking to make a left turn no longer had to wait for a green arrow. They could go as soon as opposing traffic had cleared.

Except for one not so little thing: Waiting to turn left from Greenview Shores Blvd. onto Wellington Trace, the line of cars opposite me waiting to turn left in their direction totally blocks my view of oncoming traffic proceeding straight through the intersection. That’s a recipe for someone to get t-boned sooner or later. Unfortunately, I think sooner. Can we have our green arrows back, please?
