New signs would mean safer streets

Driving west on Creekside Road in the right-hand lane approaching McBean Parkway, there is a warning traffic sign that reads "Right Lane Must Turn Right," which I always felt was confusing.

Now, lo and behold to my delight, I see this very welcoming light-up sign with a diagram on it with a circle and a red line drawn through the circle. An arrow in the circle points right to indicate that no right turn is permissible at the time.

When the coast was clear, the light sign goes off, indicating that a right-hand turn is permissible.

What a welcoming sight to see!

This new sign takes away the confusion of the printed sign that reads "Right Lane Must Turn Right."

If more of these light-up signs that indicate when you can turn right were installed at other busy intersections, it would be safer, there would be no slamming on the brakes and horn-honking to avoid a collision.

The motorist who is trying to negotiate a right turn would know not to break into traffic at an unsafe and wrong time.

Kudos to the Traffic Control Department for installing that warning sign.
