On Friday, Patty Kelley posted the following to our Facebook page:
While I realize the need for pedestrian safety, I feel the traffic light at speedy wongs on main street should be a "push button pedestrian light only", rather than a continuous cycling light. Does anyone else feel this way?
Her question stirred quite the discussion—getting a total of 10 "likes" and 11 comments by Sunday evening.
Darlene Smith called the light's functioning a "total nuisance." Carol Connors said that "half the drivers don't even stop [at the light] when it's red," but Michelle Lewis defended the light, saying that it makes it easier for drivers to take a left off of Dunstable Street and safer for kids to cross.
