I’m really hoping that if they are gonna start doing that, Route 9 gets a major overhaul as part of it. I’ve been driving that road a lot to get up to North Jersey as it’s shorter than the parkway. I see why everyone hates the traffic, that road is horribly set up! Traffic lights everywhere, slow traffic staying left, etc.
Get rid of the lights where possible and replace them with circles. Will be SO MUCH FASTER.
In the meantime, re-time the lights so you don't catch every one every time. If the lights can be timed so you catch every one, they certainly can be timed so you don't. I've been saying this for years, driving trucks and buses on that blasted road. Do your "studies" on how the lights that have to be there, work better to keep traffic moving.
Turning "right on red" doesn't save any fuel if you aren't turning.
Remember how bad the old Ernston Road traffic light intersection was? Someone with some semblance of intelligence came up with the idea to lose the light and turn the intersection into an overpass. Well, I'll be damned. It worked (mostly).
They tell me to act my age. I don't know how to do that. I've never been this old before.
