ONE YEAR LATER: KANSAS CITY HATES WESTPORT STOPLIGHT SCHEME!!!



Kansas City gave it a year and the schemes of urban planner caused a few fender benders and almost killed about a half a dozen people.

And so . . .

THE WESTPORT STOPLIGHT EXPERIMENT IS ONE OF THE WORST TRAFFIC SCHEMES KANSAS CITY HAS SEEN IN YEAR!!! IT'S TIME TO TURN THE LIGHTS BACK TO NORMAL!!!

To be fair, we're really surprised nobody died because of the confusion caused.

Here's a quick look back at the effort that didn't really make this party district any safer . . .

The goal:

"After a year-long evaluation period, the new alignment is expected to become a permanent feature with relocated curbs, new street trees, site furniture and enhanced paving. The added value is already evident, but once permanent, this improvement will make Westport a more sociable, safe and profitable place."

Check their promo video from earlier this year.

You decide . . .

It got used to it after awhile. For the most part people slow down or should slow down when they get to the main intersection. The real danger was on Mill Street. Still not safe, but more people know know what's going on.

I disagree. The stoplights used to back up traffic past the Broadway and Mill Street intersections. I have not seen that since the flashing red lights were installed.

If anything remove the flashing stoplights and put in Stop Signs and a speed bump.
The stoplights confuse people.

Great video of black shoppers in Florida. Can we be as good?

I work there. This is a non-issue. What really fudges up the traffic is liquor and food distributor tractor trailers taking up the entire roadway during morning and early afternoon deliveries.

KC is fucking amazing. We tax the fuck out of citizens to spend tens of millions and then brag how it will bring in a couple million in tax revenue that will go to promote more freaking pet projects. Fucking perpetual insanity.

We ought to privatize the entire city and push the negroes into one location.

Then wipe 'em out!!!
