Flashing green light could reduce accidents

2016-01-06 06:00

WITH regards to all the road accidents at intersections, where traffic lights control traffic, my idea is that the green light should start to flash for a few seconds before turning to amber and stop.

This would notify the motorist not to speed towards a flashing green light and warn the motorist to excise caution when approaching and to prepare to stop, rather than race through and cause an accident.

This is how it should work - green light, flashing green light, amber and stop.

Perhaps cameras should also be installed at these traffic lights and if anybody races through a flashing green light they should be fined.

This could help prevent many road accidents.
