The traffic lights at the intersection of 500 South and 500 West should switch on the left turn light every time or every other time. This is probably the busiest or second busiest intersection in Bountiful. It can take about 10 minutes to get through when the turn light is not on.
Imagine what it would be like if a traffic jam on I-15 forces cars to flow into that intersection or if the weather is bad. This is quite frustrating to those of us who work or are trying to reach an appointment on time. When a long line of cars is backed up it can block off the entrances to nearby side streets or businesses. Yielding at a green light is only possible if traffic is light enough.
Often drivers feel compelled to run a yellow or red light just to get through the intersection.
