About five years ago, I had a 45-minute discussion with someone at the City of Kamloops in charge of setting up traffic lights, this being the ones at the intersection of Highway 5A and Rogers Way in Aberdeen.
My concern was that a left advance light needed to be included because of the busy hotel/tourist corridor of Rogers Way, the Petro-Canada and Esso stations causing extra congestion, the busy Highway 5A traffic and the danger of collisions from the cross traffic.
It was an amicable discussion and I was told the intersection had been monitored and the decision had been made that no advance light was necessary at that time.
Last month, one was installed and it behooves me to acknowledge this addition and thank the city for this move.
There is often more criticism than praise, so this is a thank you to city hall.
