Remove All Lights Now! What a fantastic letter in last week's Mailbox from J H Lewis, regarding the Cabstand (still) lights abomination.The best yet, highlighting the pedantic, arrogant attitude of those who've inflicted this daily misery on us all, and their head-in-the-sand attitude, refusing to admit they've wasted thousands of pounds on traffic lights that will have to be ripped out and corrected. The blatantly obvious solutions, to rectify the ridiculous mess are. 1. Relocate the petrol station, either a few hundred yards to the vicinity of the Travel Inn/Brewsters, or further. 2. Replace all infernal Cabstand traffic lights with an elongated island system. 3. Remove all traffic lights outside the Co-op/MacDonald's and replace with island. 4. Remove the next three sets of lights, and replace with simple, but effective, pedestrian crossings. (You could march a legion of geriatric ants across and back, the time it takes to change!) 5. Pedestrian crossings to be placed at Cabstand and Health Centre. 6. All those responsible for this nightmare, whilst looking for jobs they're good at, be marched through the village, at the front of the carnival procession (clowns clothes optional) to the Flower Show Field, where they are placed in stocks, while we find an appropriate place to retire their beloved lights ! It's so simple.D Tansley - Avon Way, Portishead
