To the editor:
I have an issue regarding the way people obey the traffic lights at night — or lack thereof. Late at night (around 11 p.m.) most stoplights in town will flash. If lights flash red, drivers must stop then proceed with caution. If they flash yellow, drivers must slow down and proceed with caution. It’s the law.
I’ve seen countless drivers speed on through the yellow and even red flashing lights at night as if it’s a regular daytime green light. It’s dangerous. If everyone sped through those lights, there would be accidents everywhere.
Drivers, please obey the traffic laws. If you see someone slow down or stop at an intersection with flashing stoplights, get a clue and slow down yourself. Keep everyone safe at night.
