On July 19, I experienced an unwanted close encounter of a two-car accident at the intersection of U.S. 278 and the entrance of Sun City Hilton Head. I believe the flashing left-turn yellow arrow may have contributed to this accident and others.
The flashing yellow arrow gives drivers the option to turn left when they judge it’s safe to cross. I suggest removing this option by changing the traffic light sequence to be the same as the light at the intersection at Okatie Center Boulevard South and U.S. 278, which displays only a left-turn green arrow.
I hope and pray that my suggestion of changing the traffic light will be considered ... it may reduce the amount of accidents at this intersection.
