Neighbors Worry Broken Traffic Lights On Magazine St. Will Lead To Injuries

“This is dangerous.  Somebody’s going to get injured bad or somebody’s going to get killed.  Time to do something,” said business owner O. J. Hooter while looking at the intersection of Magazine and St Andrew Streets.

The traffic lights have been out at the intersection for at least a week, several weeks according to some people who live or work in the area.

The city has temporary stop signs placed at the intersection.  But drivers often run them.  Some might not see the signs at all.

“If you’re behind a bus or a big truck or something, you can’t physically see the stop sign,” Hooter said.

“It’s very annoying now.  There’s traffic from 4 directions and nobody knows who’s coming where,” added neighbor Nancy Mix.

Mix and Hooter are concerned somebody could get hit because the area is popular for people who walk and shop along Magazine Street or who ride their bicycles in the area.

Other neighbors complain the lack of working traffic lights causes longer than usual backups during peak commuting hours.

We asked someone with the city for a time table for repairs and were told someone would look into it and get back with us.
