All of these intersections have lights and protective green arrows. How about posting a police officer at these intersection and give out tickets for everyone that runs the red lights and speed thru the yellow lights. Learn to drive. Stops signs also. The city could make alot of money for other stupid decisions.  How about using some of the city money to clean up the dry river bottoms so when we do get rain the run off would amount to more.
