YOUR TURN: Brian Campbell's traffic light frustrations

WMC-TV General Manager Lee Meredith WMC-TV General Manager Lee Meredith

This week's "Your Turn" segment goes to Brian Campbell. Campbell wrote us to complain about how poorly the traffic lights are timed in the city of Memphis. He believes the city has advertised to get help to fix the problem, but he’s not seeing any results. 

In his words:

"Anyone who drives in the Memphis area will realize that a five minute drive takes 20 minutes due to most lights being red -- in all directions, in all areas. This traffic light issue has been solved by most large metro areas for decades. Why can't Memphis follow their lead? Two solutions: one, after certain hours, change to flashing yellow and red, or two, time the lights and tie them to each other so as you drive, the lights turn green as you go. Surely the city can create an action plan to correct this."

That's Brian Campbell’s turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
