I can’t stomach lights!

RE: ‘Time to give relief to town’s poor pedestrians’ – Ivor’s column, June 8.
I SECOND Ivor’s thoughts on the pointlessness of the buttons on the traffic lights in Queen Victoria Road. I use this crossing on my way to the station and they appear to make no difference to the timing of the lights.
And while we’re on the subject, I would also like to express my opinion on the placing of the pedestrian signal lights at waist level. This has become standard in the area over the last few years. Previously, the red wait and green walk lights were on the opposite side of the road at a high level. With the lights at waist level, it takes only one person of any height to obscure one’s view. With the lights at high level, it was previously much less likely that one’s view would be blocked.
