Traffic signal should be installed before senior residence is built on busy Catonsville road

Letter to the editor

November 06, 2011

I have no problem with a senior residence on the Y property ("Senior residence facility proposed for Y's property," Catonsville Times, Nov. 2).

However, before this happens there needs to be a traffic signal at the entrance as well as a turn lane.

I have watched my parents grow older and more frail in their driving.

I can imagine older drivers attempting to make a left turn into or out of the driveway without a traffic light.

I don't want to read about accidents (and deaths) of senior citizens and others when elderly drivers attempt to access/depart their residence.

Traffic is only going to increase on South Rolling Road.

By the time this senior residence is built, what is the traffic flow expected to be?
