I refer to the letter from Ms Diana Dowling in the Times of March 8 in which she suggests that the lights at Cabstand are 'hopeless'.Presumably this comment refers to the traffic lights but it could equally refer to the system of pedestrian crossing lights. There appears to be no co-ordination between the lights controlling the traffic and the system for pedestrians.Long waits for those on foot occur while cars pile up with their lights at red by their side. This seems to be the norm and I should know for I use the crossings frequently.The majority of pedestrians do as I do - check the status of the traffic lights and which row of cars is ready to move and make my decision to cross or not on my observations.There are a few pedestrians who punch the button but look puzzled when the red man stays determinedly lit. Most revert to some form of my method eventually.I hope the originators of the whole scheme have sought professional help for the new disease of trafficlitus.
