Dangerous intersection in need of a traffic signal

Dec 14, 2012 - Eddie and Dee Amend, Riverton

Editor:

Again? We extend our sympathies to the unfortunate recent victims of a notoriously dangerous traffic intersection.

How many serious, even fatal accidents must be tolerated before the obvious lesson is learned? The intersection of Honor Farm Road and Wyoming Highway 789 is a very dangerous place. Greatly improved, traffic control at that intersection has repeatedly been called for.

Cannot the Wyoming Department of Transportation, with support of Riverton city administration and Fremont County citizens, succeed in the installation of a standard traffic control light? A plain old "red-yellow-green-stop-and-go" traffic light and accompanying reduced speed would go a long way toward making the intersection safer for all travelers. Think about it.
