    The backup on Packard was worse than usual. It might have moved more quickly than it often does, perhaps because there are fewer cars on or turning on to Stadium and the light is cycling more quickly or giving Packard a greater percentage of green time.

    A couple of drivers lost patience and crossed the double yellow line prematurely (near Shadford) to get in the left turn lane. One of them almost ran into a snowplow which would have really fouled things up!

    The light for turning left from E. Stadium onto Packard also needs tweaking as it was backed up as far as South Industrial Monday morning. The City is working on it. Also, people seem to be catching on to other routes.

    Folks are also confused at Stimson and State. The cars are too far out from under the light to see the left turn signal so they just sit there and turn once the intersection is cleared of any on-coming traffic.

    There really needs to be a left turn signal across the street. Or else, for once it would help if cars who can see the light would honk in code “light is green.”

    Last night, Packard was backed up past Thompson from Stadium. It took me 45 minutes to get from downtown to Packard & Granger on the bus. I should have walked. I would have saved 15 minutes AND gotten some exercise!
