It’s frustrating enough to drive on the Post Road, and realize how out-of-sync the traffic lights are.
It’s even more frustrating to call Town Hall to complain, and be told: “Sorry. We can’t do anything. It’s a state road.”
Alert “06880” reader Josh Stein shares your frustration. Now he shares something else: a possible solution.
The Connecticut Department of Transportation offers an online form to report road issues.
Some of the dropdown categories include mowing, illumination, potholes and dead animals.
But there — right in the middle of the menu — is “Traffic Signal Revisions.”
Click here for the form.
And remember: It’s not just the Post Road (Route 1) that’s a state road. Click here for a map showing all the others in town (they’re green).
There’s no guarantee that filling out the form will make anything happen.
There’s no guarantee anyone will even read it.
But it gives you something to do the next time you’re stuck at a mistimed, too long or otherwise frustrating light.
