    My four year old knows that a red light means STOP. There are traffic lights on every Main Street in this valley. The article specifically says, “A driver ran a red light and crashed into another car” and “Police said a woman ran a red light and crashed into another car at 9000 S.” It sounds like two drivers weren’t paying attention and caused two accidents that happened to be on Mountain View Corridor in as many days. If somebody isn’t paying attention they could run a red light anywhere. The one thing that all driving requires is attention. If you make it a priority your chance of causing or avoiding an accident is much greater. If people would put their phones down, stop eating, no makeup, and anything else that distracts them our chance of getting in an accident would decrease enormously.

    I think there is something wrong with the synchronization of the lights on the Mountain View Corridor. I don’t think all of the people who are in accidents in these intersections are stupid or distracted. There are just too many. Something has to be wrong with the design.
