Good. Maybe the stupid things will be shut off in place just like they were when Greenville tried this crap 15 years ago.

Props to The East Carolinian for covering this story RELENTLESSLY for 7 months by themselves. The daily reflector, WITN, WCTI and WNCT all dropped the ball with this one and they should be ashamed. I hope GFR gets the changes they need and deserve.

I'm still astounded the Reflector never picked this up. The TV stations are pretty terrible but the Reflector can still put out a good article when it wants to.

Businesses planning repairs to pothole-riddled driveway - Daily Reflector

Good news for those of us who frequent Arlington Village. Coming in or out the main entrance at Arlington Blvd. has been worse than driving across the moon...

I actually think they're a good idea - I agree with the lawsuit that I don't think the caution is long enough to give you time to legally get through the lights, but those are some back intersections and I've watched wrecks where people try to fly through at the last minute....but the light was already red.

Now if they'd just put one up at Greenville Blvd and 10th Street at Hastings Ford....one of the most dangerous intersections...and a high volume of college students who tend to be more distracted.

I see the completion date for the 10th Street Connector is now November 2018. They must really be putting the pedal to the metal since NCDOT’s progress report page still shows July 2019.
