Not too long ago I made a snarky comment about my community, Ringwood, being somewhat behind the times since we didn’t even have a traffic signal within our borough boundaries. As of this morning that has changed as the traffic lights at Skyline Drive and Erskine Road are now officially operational! And so far, no one has done anything “stupid” in driving through the intersection.
But rush hour is coming and we’ll see how things will work out then. I had breakfast with the clergy of Ringwood this morning and there was conversation among us about sitting in lawn chairs on St. Catherine’s front yard and watching the action take place to see how far traffic backs up due to the light. Everyone is curious about that and we’ll wait and see as no one is sure we have the cure to our traffic woes with the lights hanging over our heads.
