Unnecessary Traffic Signal
As I was stopped at a red light at the newly installed Beach Channel Drive and Beach 104 Street traffic signal, I realized that no pedestrians ever cross the street at this intersection. That is not surprising since there is nothing on the north side of Beach Channel Drive but a sidewalk and a cyclone fence. Apparently, there is no need for a traffic signal at this intersection.
If a signal is desired just for the sake of having one, it should be a push button type which initiates a red light only on request. This would allow traffic to flow freely over 99 percent of the time.
