Dear Editor:
 
I live in Moncks Corner, and was recently surprised while on my way to work in Charleston.
There were new traffic lights on Hwy. 52 between Moncks Corner and Goose Creek. The traffic lights were out of sequence. When one was red, the next was green. This caused a lot of stop and go, and heavy congestion on the road.
There was a train coming on the far left side of the road, and the lights functioned normally. If you turned left, you hit a red light and a blinking light for the train.
Can someone explain to me why the lights were not set to blink on Hwy. 52 when the train was coming? The traffic was getting backed up and we still had to stop at every other light!
In my opinion if you cannot turn left because of the train, the lights should have been set to caution and blinking. The traffic would have continued to move and the motorists would have been happy.
Why are the lights out of sequence? Are they trying to avoid accidents? An angry motorist stuck in traffic is an accident waiting to happen!
