St. Albert Transportation, please sequence the lights at the intersection of St. Albert Trail and Hebert Road as a solid red after the left turn advance signal before another tragic fatality happens. Our family drove through California in the summer of 2011 and it was rare to find an intersection that did not have a solid red light after the left turn green advance signal.

You will undoubtedly get complaints from drivers being inconvenienced a few minutes, but I would rather be inconvenienced a few minutes than dead! Vehicles have to cross three lanes when turning east or westbound onto Hebert Road from St. Albert Trail and this is just plain unsafe. Please make this change immediately.

Terry Sperling, St. Albert
