Description

Currently there is a left turn arrown for the West Bound (W/B) traffic on Fulton Ave (Hempstead Tpke) at the intersection of N. Franklin Ave. however there is NO turn lane for vehicles making the left turn. If any W/B vehicle, other than the 1st vehicle stopped at the light, is making a left turn they are not able to do so until the next cycle due to the East bound traffic. This causes W/B traffic in the left lane to back up almost the full length of the block and impatient drivers to make sudden unsafe lane changes into the right lane. The condition can be easily fixed by adding a left turn lane for W/B traffic, there is sufficient room to accomplish this if 3-4 parking spaces are eliminated on either the East or West Bound side.
