Summer is fast approaching and we are all looking forward to attending exciting events in and around the city. With crowds come traffic, and lots of it! Remember, when approaching a traffic signal in heavy traffic, if you aren’t sure you can make it through the intersection before the light turns red…you probably can’t! Stopping in the intersection or in a crosswalk, obviously, blocks the opposite flow of traffic and can cause what you see in this picture. Therefore, remember to stop at the white line marked prior to the intersection, not in it. Stopping in the intersection can also result in traffic citations, which will quickly put a damper on summer fun.
