Our buddy Max Fuqua let us know of a great experience he had while dealing with the city government. It seems the traffic signal at Milton and Hillcrest never senses Max’s presence while he’s on his bike, leading to perilous trips across Hillcrest. We’ll let him take it from here.
I sent a service request through the City website yesterday, all the while thinking it would take weeks for them to get to something small like this after all the problems the record snowfall recently caused. To my surprise, this morning I got a call from a UP traffic engineer, who arranged to meet me at the intersection a couple of hours later. In five minutes he increased the number of pixel fields that the camera analyzes, and the problem was solved. In less than 24 hours! Now that’s great service from our city!
