Traffic lights will create a gridlock

While I sympathise with the motorists having their journeys delayed due to the traffic lights along Earsdon Road (News Guardian, May 15), this will be a picnic compared to what the council is planning next.

Traffic lights at Four Lane Ends, and some more then a 100 metres away, starting in August.

I predict gridlock, yet no one will be held accountable.
