The letter “Unnecessary Traffic Light” needs a rebuttal. The narrow bridge claimed at least two lives. I know, I was there with the Rescue Fire Department. Speed was most likely the problem. This intersection has been the scene of many accidents, most were fender benders so they don’t make the newspaper. I was the Chief of the Rescue Fire Department for 20 years. I responded to many of them. I suspect that the biggest problem with a stoplight at North Shingle and Green Valley roads is that it slows down the morning commute from Lotus, Coloma, Garden Valley and Georgetown, plus other locations. Now the locals will have a fair and safe chance to use the road in all directions. Fixing this problem was long overdue. Thank you, El Dorado County.
