Left-turn signal needed in Abington
To the Editor:
While a red light camera at the intersection of Susquehanna and vork roads will undoubtedly reduce accidents and add to the township’s revenue stream, it will do little to alleviate the major cause of accidents at that intersection: the fact that there are no left-turn signal lights from Susquehanna onto YRUN 5RDG. 7heUe DUe leIWturn lights from vork onto Susquehanna but none from Susquehanna onto YRUN.
We have often seen a half-dozen cars backed up on Susquehanna attemptLnJ WR mDNe WhDW leIW WXUn. After waiting two or three light cycles, drivers get desperate and attempt the left turn after the light has turned red for them and green for vork road, resulting in a T-bone accident by a vork Road driver with a JUeen lLJhW.
Those of us in the know go through the intersection and accomplish the left turn Ey GeWRXULnJ WR Whe nexW Lntersection and making two lefts followed by a right onto YRUN 5RDG.
I learned from Abington Township Commissioner 3eJJy 0yeUs WhDW she EelLeYes WhDW 3ennD27 hDs already been petitioned for left-turn lights on SusquehDnnD. 3eUhDSs Whey shRXlG be petitioned again and made aware of the real problem at that intersecWLRn.
rndoubtedly, a left-turn signal on Susquehanna wRXlG Ee D lRW less exSensive than a red light cameUD.
