Civics Lesson Needed…
Now that gas has spiked over 3 bucks/gallon – I’ve become more aware of my driving habits, including time and distance. I am utilizing the AC less and am driving at or below the speed limit. I’ve signed up for a carpool and am working on a telework proposal to present to “the Man” at work. It’s a shame that it took a $12.84 gasoline purchase (topping off my tank, mind you) to move me to action – but it is what it is.
In light of my heightened sense of all things petro, nothing chafes my hide more than sitting in traffic. Traffic that just doesn’t have to be. Traffic that is caused by an insane amount of people all deciding to head in the same direction at the same time. Traffic that is further exacerbated by the lack of sound traffic control.
Inspired by this sign – which incidentally was removed a week or so back – I’m curious about exactly WHAT it would take to have a turn signal added to the southbound (I’m directionally challenged) lane on Briarcliff at the Ponce de Leon intersection?
It’s not that I don’t enjoy staring at the bulge for 10 minutes as I attempt to cross over Ponce, nor is it that I mind idling behind a MARTA bus spewing noxious fumes as it inches ever closer to the bus stop at said intersection
Where do I begin?
Who do I call?
Do I need signatures?
Am I required to be a city of Atlanta resident?
Any suggestions would be appreciated….
