Ten lights to slow them

The simple solution to solve the confusion at the McTavish Road traffic circles is the installation of traffic lights.

The simple solution to solve the confusion at the McTavish Road traffic circles is the installation of traffic lights.

Three on the most westerly roundabout, four on the centre one and three on the eastern circle.

These ten lights will slow traffic enough to allow drivers the time required to read the signs and make a decision as to which way to turn.

A further improvement would be to follow the local practice of having all the lights out of synch, slowing progress even more and thus greatly reducing the chance of collision.

Obviously, the ultimate solution is a single light on the Pat Bay Highway and a dedicated delayed green left turn lane to the airport.

But, where would we get the political insight and funds for that?
