Letter: Add left-turn signals at busy intersection

Add left-turn signals at busy intersection

I am a retired traffic signal technician and superintendent of the signal system of the City of Buffalo. The traffic signal at the intersection of Delaware and Kenmore avenues needs to be upgraded. I believe it is owned or controlled by the New York State Department of Transportation.

This intersection already has exclusive left-turn lanes in all directions, but there is only one left-turn signal for west to north. If you are making a left turn in any of the other directions, especially at peak traffic times, you are lucky if one or two cars can make these turns. By installing exclusive left turns at this traffic light, it will also relieve a lot of tie-ups.
