Email re traffic lights

Dear Brian,

Relating to your piece on the filter at the traffic lights:

While KCC have put in a filter light to turn left when coming into town from the Curragh Road, they have not yet changed the road marking too.

The result is that if you want to go straight on towards Dunlavin, the road marking tells you to keep in the left lane and meanwhile the left arrow comes on, on its own. I have already seen two near accidents as a result of the confusion arising from this, and also witnessed people rather inappropriately becoming angry with those in the left lane who just want to go straight on but obviously can't.

It is a complete mess at the moment.

Noel Clare.
