The City Government of Cagayan de Oro recently started operating several unused and under utilized traffic lights in some intersections and this has drawn varied reactions from motorists with some saying it has caused even more traffic and delays while others say it was better to have it operated to put taxpayers’ money in use.
For example, motorists had an unpleasant experience when the traffic lights at Jollibee Bulua were switched on last week. Because of the traffic sequence, vehicular flow was restricted during rush hour and many reported late for work.
Another traffic light system switched on is the SSS-Liceo Junction (Vamenta Blvd-RN Pelaez Blvd.)
In a radio interview, a traffic official said the traffic lights are sometimes turned off for adjustments.
