    Talking about traffic…Someone needs to tell me WHY! front street between Waterloo and the Birdcage is GRIDLOCKED …I’m not even gonna wait for your answer coz ill tell you…It’s them F#@k!n LIGHTS!!! too many traffic control lights combined with pedestrian controlled lights…2 cars then the lights change because someone has pressed the button to cross but then walks in between the cars before the light even changes and of course then it goes red while all others are green…no movement at all…another problem is people clogging junctions because their light is green but no one can move…very good breeding ground for road rage the rest of the way home.

    FIX DAT S#!T!

    All lights green out of town …mandatory lights for pedestrians every 5 mins.

    Traffic travels better when the lights are out…Everyone is MORE aware and courteous then.

      At Christmas it was HORRIBLE. It took literally 40 minutes to travel the length of Front Street. Two cars through, then a red light, one car through, then a red light. Felt like ditching the car where it stood and walking.
