IN THE MAIL: Synchronize traffic lights in Grand Forks

GRAND FORKS -- A recent Herald story included gas-saving tips. One was to avoid stop-and-go traffic. Good advice, but how do you avoid stop-and-go traffic in Grand Forks on Columbia Road, 32nd Avenue South and other thoroughfares?

We find the lack of synchronized street signals in major thoroughfares in Grand Forks to be a major driving irritant and a cause of lower gas mileage and increased car maintenance expense.

We have seen cars exceeding the speed limit and, on occasion, running red lights in their attempts to beat a red light.

We urge Grand Forks to proceed with a plan to synchronize traffic lights so that, when driving the speed limit, traffic can proceed smoothly with green lights.
