The intersection of AL-21 and Cedars Road is a very important intersection in Munford, AL. At this intersection is the Munford post office and the Munford Elementary and High Schools. So this intersection sees a lot of traffic every day. This intersection only had a caution light before someone got killed. Then the community got together to push ALDOT in installing a traffic light.
The traffic light is only operational during school hours. At all other times, the light is on blinking mode. I wonder why the light is set up like this. Because I will sit at the post office and watch cars almost crashing in too each other because the busy AL-21 traffic is too heavy to cross at times. There are no sensors installed at this light to control the light. So that means the light is on a timer mode when its operational.
I also noticed there are no white lines or limit lines on AL-21 like you see at other traffic lights. I kind of think this is a little dangerous don’t you think?
I believe this traffic light needs to be operational 24/7. During the times of sporting events at the high school such as a high school football game. Traffic often pulls out of other cars almost causing accidents. The sad thing is during a high school football game, the traffic light is on blinking mode.
This traffic light needs to have sensors installed and the light needs to be operational 24/7. How long will it be before someone gets killed at this intersection because the traffic light was on blinking mode? I don’t know if this is a ALDOT issue or a City of Munford issue. But this needs to be done! Enjoy a video of this intersection!
