Feedback on Proposed Traffic Solution Continues

“I feel turn lanes are necessary. Everyone tries to go around cars turning left and it causes almost wrecks.” –Simpsonville Resident

I’ve noticed this too. When traffic gets backed up and frustration arises, people will often try to hurry past the car turning left. Otherwise, they know they could get stuck as the light turns red. Again. It’s understandable because it takes so much time to get to and through the light. But it’s also dangerous because oncoming traffic is still coming, and it’s difficult too see.

What do you think? Keeping in mind this is the only option DOT and County will support, are left turn signals (which require left turn storage/lanes) necessary? Share your thoughts here:
