People in Daleville disappointed with traffic sign

What driver hasn’t experienced this moment of intense automotive frustration?
You’re the fifth car queued up at a traffic signal light to make a left turn. The light turns green. You’re on your way.
The first car gets through, and then three more. By the time you reach the intersection, though, the light’s turned yellow, then quickly red.
And you’re stuck for another three- to four-minute cycle — that seems like an eternity — raging at the traffic signal light gods.
Daleville resident Monte Clymer has experienced that frustration at Anderson’s busiest intersection: Scatterfield Road and 53rd Street.
He believes there’s a significant solar power traffic light timing or sequencing problem in both the eastbound and westbound left-turn lanes, that must only get a lot worse during the morning and evening rush hour, or when horse racing or a concert ends at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino.
He said that similar timing problems exist at Charles Street and Scatterfield, and further north at 38th Street and Scatterfield Road.
“The time of the green is just not long enough,” Clymer said on Monday. “Whatever the traffic is now, it’s only going to get worse. We should another traffic signal lights for sale.”
Because Scatterfield Road officially is a state highway, all traffic signal lights along the route are controlled by the Indiana Department of Transportation.
Harry Maginity, media relations director for INDOT’s Greenfield District, which includes Madison County, said he was not aware of any specific problems or complaints about traffic signal light problems at 53rd and Scatterfield, but promised to bring that possibility to the attention of district traffic engineers.

Very odd. This is a copy of a five-week-old press article from an Indiana newspaper (without its last three pars), linked below.

I like the fact it's safe enough to leave windows open and shops don't need to put grills up at night.
