Letters – Tarrytown Could Benefit from New Traffic Light
To the Editor:
Re: “Making Our Streets Safer for Pedestrians” – Dec. 2015, Page 23
I would like to add to the writer’s suggestions for making our streets safer. My priority would be:
A traffic light with a left-turn arrow at the corner of West Franklin St. and Rte. 9. The current situation causes problems in all directions: At busy times, cars coming up Franklin from the station have to line up and wait for a break in traffic to make a right turn onto Rte. 9. (Left turns are not permitted at all.) Similarly cars traveling north on Rte. 9 must wait for a break in traffic to turn left onto Franklin.
A traffic light would not only make this corner safer but also minimize congestion. Surely, Tarrytown should be able to work with the appropriate agencies to make this happen.
