Gananoque Traffic Lights
|July 29, 2011||Posted by admin under Uncategorized|
Seemingly the timing of lights in Town has been “adjusted to improve traffic flow”.
Readjustment may be an idea? It seems to be working really well so far, I can almost drive to Kingston and back, and buy whatever I need, in the time it takes me to cross Gan, I saw several out of town plated cars doing U-turns today to head back onto 401.
And (probably just a biased Englishmans view) but my idea would be: Rip out all the lights and 4 way stops, we don’t have enough traffic to need them, we CREATE the traffic jams by having them, replace them all with Mini-Roundabouts, which unfortunately would have to involve teaching drivers how to use them.
E.G. Typical 4 Way stop: everone stops, looks at each other, someone goes, someone stops, someone swears at someone going, etc.
Gananoque Lights: Stop, wait for no reason because nothing is coming if it’s in Town Centre late or early, or wait for full pointless sequence because a long gone car turned right out of Elizabeth drive, if you’re in lucky 8 you may get through before it starts all over again
Roundabout: everyone slows approaching it, looks left, nothing coming then proceeds around with no stop, if a car is approaching then you slow, then carry on.
