Turn Hereford Traffic Lights To Part-Time Status 7pm-7am

Turn Hereford Traffic Lights To Part-Time Status 7pm-7am

We would like both the Highways Agency and Herefordshire Council to allow the traffic lights at the junction where the A465 meets the A49
(Asda roundabout/junction) and where the A49 meets the A438 Newmarket St
(Old Market roundabout/junction) to become part-time signals during non peak times from 7pm-7am with exception to the pedestrian crossings which would still be in operation for the safety of pedestrians.

Why is this important?

All of these traffic lights are relatively pointless during off peak times and often motorists become frustrated and impatient while being forced to sit at red lights, this can often be at 2am when there are clearly no other vehicles in sight!
By signing our petition you are in strong favour of these signals being changed to PART-TIME status from 7pm-7am

Reasons for signing

  • Totally agree.
  • Senseless to be waiting at lights when no traffic around
  • Traffic lights for no traffic doesn't make sense and there is no "traffic" at night. Flashing amber at night works on the Continent, why not here?
