A signal only solution for slowing traffic on South Rolling Road

July 08, 2011

Wasting money on decorative brick crosswalks is not going to solve the traffic/speed problem on Rolling Road ("Rolling Road work may get on a fast track," Catonsville Times, June 22).

Baltimore County might as well not do anything and not waste taxpayer money.

We don't need fancy, expensive crosswalks on dangerous roads. Instead, we need a traffic light at Newburg Avenue and South Rolling Road.

Newburg Avenue is a cut-through street for many neighborhoods. This intersection is highly confusing for motorists, pedestrians, high school students and bikers.

There could be 10 different traffic combinations happening at one time at this intersection. Both distracting and dangerous, it needs a traffic light.

A brick crosswalk is not going to make this intersection any safer; it will prove to be just another distraction.
