Letter: Fix the Traffic Jam at Kilian & Hicksville Road

Heading east from the post office or the bank on Kilian Road, it is practically impossible to make a left turn onto Hicksville Road to Sunrise Highway. The traffic on Hicksville Road waiting for the traffic light to turn green can number more than 20 vehicles most of the time. Many times on Kilian Road there’s more than 10 cars waiting to make a left turn onto Hicksville Road and by the time the Hicksville Road traffic goes, the light is missed and traffic is crossing Sunrise Highway heading south and cars are still stuck. In my opinion there’s only one way to fix the problem. That is to make it a “no left turn” onto Hicksville Road any time. I have talked to many people and to elected officials about the problem and everyone seems to agree, “no left turn” would solve the problem. Make a right turn, go to the light, make a left at the Triangle Park to Sunrise Highway.

Another problem on Kilian Road is in front of the post office. The blue handicap markings at the street and curb can hardly be seen so anyone can park there and take the space from one that really needs it. I’ve talked to people in the post office and called our local councilman’s office but nothing has changed. Why?
