Stop the Light at Greatwood Parkway & Sansbury
As concerned citizens of Greatwood, we are opposed to the planned installation of a stoplight at the intersection of Greatwood Parkway and Sansbury Boulevard for the following reasons.
1. A traffic light will increase the speed of traffic through the intersection which would further increase the current speed problems experienced on the Parkway. The increased speed through the intersection would be dangerous for the residents and more specifically children and parents who walk their children as they cross to and from school.
2. Our belief is the inclusion of a traffic light will increase the likelihood of accidents in the intersection due to the natural tendency of drivers to "challenge" yellow lights and run red lights.
3. The inclusion of a traffic light in the interior of the neighborhood will encourage the use of Sansbury and Greatwood Parkway as thoughfares rather than their intended use as neighborhood streets.
4. A traffic light in the interior neighborhood will likely decrease the value of our homes in the neighborhood.
