New Left turn arrows

Postby fxlnll » Thu Mar 27, 2014 9:29 am

Just great, I guess Petaluma will sink to the lowest common denominator with drivers. The very stupid ones. According to the article in the paper they will be turning a lot more intersections into left turn only green lights. Can Petaluma think of anymore ways to create more traffic :roll: There is no info if they will be combined green arrow and then turn when it is safe like they ALL should be. There was an article a year or so ago that would have had flashing yellow lights at turn left when it is safe intersections. As dumb as that is at least it won't slow traffic like the left turn arrows.

Don't agree. I love left turn arrows. Hate being caught in the intersection and cross traffic tries to smash into me. I'll actually travel to intersecton that has one if i can. Unfortunately people don't know how to drive and this will make things much safer.

Maybe those people shouldn't be driving. It is a HUGE pain in the ass, sitting there with ZERO oncoming traffic and no one being able to turn. A great rant about these silly left turn arrows

RANT: Whose idea was it to get rid of the green turn arrow at East Madison and McDowell? (The one leading in and out of the shopping center/towards East Madison).

Now as you leave the shopping center to turn left onto McDowell, you have to yield. If there is a lot of oncoming traffic, you miss getting out completely. Before, at least six or seven cars could exit the shopping center.....now you might have to sit through a few red lights to get out. Not good!
