I don’t know who sets the timing on the traffic lights on 441 in Tangerine, but I have a bone to pick with him or her about the traffic light at the intersection of US 441 and the entrance to Stoneybrook Hills.Simply put, the duration of the yellow light of the traffic signal is simply too short. This intersection is located in a hollow of sorts and traffic approaching in both directions is gaining momentum as it heads into the “bowl” at the bottom. Picture drivers barreling downhill with other drivers on their tails suddenly confronted with a yellow light that flashes to red very quickly. They have an instantaneous decision to make: either screech to a stop or run the light.
