Traffic management chaos

I ran into three consecutive red lights this morning. Again.

I ran into three consecutive red lights this morning. Again. This happens over and over, all over Red Deer. Every driver in this city knows of this problem, and we just sit there and shake our heads. So, on behalf of every driver of every vehicle in Red Deer I will ask this question: Who’s running this gong show? Whoever is responsible should be fired and the city should hire someone who fully understands the concept of free-flowing traffic.

On the other hand, as someone who has been critical of the state of the roads in this city, I would like to congratulate City Hall for the huge improvement this year in road repairs. What a relief! From the bottom of my shock absorbers, I thank you.
