Once again, NYCC’s unhealthy and ineffective obsession with traffic lights is raised (Advertiser, April 27).
Is there some arcane rationale which determines why and where they are thrown up; if so, could we please have access to it?
I ask having once again puzzled over the Chatsworth Grove pedestrian crossing with increasing disbelief.
This has six ugly lanterns, making a total of eighteen lights to control nothing more complex than two-lane King’s Road.
I pass and obsess over it, almost every day and am starting to wonder if I am becoming as irrational as NYCC.
There are many similar unsightly, needless configurations all over the town.
We were forced to pay for them and continue to fund their maintenance at a time when funding for buses, libraries and other vital services is being pared to the bone.
Could someone - anyone - please explain why?
