Two residents of Coweta, Georgia recently approached the Coweta County Board to request that traffic lights be installed at two local intersections to control traffic and reduce accidents, according to a recent article in the Times-Herald.
The first request was for a traffic light at the intersection of Highway 29 and Hal Jones Road, where one of the residents suffered a traumatic brain injury several years ago in a Georgia auto accident. The county has been redesigning the intersection to make a traffic light easier to install. However, the state has not yet approved a traffic light at that intersection because the Georgia Department of Transportation does not believe the rate of accidents at the intersection requires one.
The second request was for a traffic light on Highway 34 at the Kroger shopping center. One resident who spoke in support of this traffic light had suffered a severe car accident at the intersection. He said the hill and curve make it difficult to see at the intersection, and that the county should require area developers to put in a traffic light to prevent future serious accidents. The Georgia Department of Transportation has issued a permit to put in a traffic light at that intersection.
