And who thought it would be a good idea to mess with the turn lights at our intersections? What was wrong with the way they were? I have driven in other cities that had turn lights like this, and I always wondered why. What was so wrong with both turn lanes going at the same time? And why don’t we have more left turn yield on green lights? Have you ever sat waiting to turn into Meijer or WalMart, and sat there for three minutes while absolutely no traffic was coming in the opposite direction?
The bottom line is that this city loves to waste money. Let’s give $3 million to a private institute. (Saint Francis). Let’s waste $200,000 on high-speed rail studies that most city councilmen stated was a “long shot” in passing. I just don’t get it.
