Traffic Light Changes Due to Cluster of Accidents Along Magnolia Avenue

A cluster of accidents in the area caused the Sheriff traffic division to look into the cause and make a fix.

The Santee Review (city of Santee blog) reported this week that hoods were placed on a set of traffic lights to make them more obvious to drivers on North Magnolia Avenue, an area that has been prone to more traffic accidents since the SR-52 freeway was expanded.

City traffic analysts found that 20 traffic collisions had occurred on Magnolia around the freeway interchanges since March 2011, with more than half of the accidents involving drivers running red traffic lights.

Some of the drivers in the accidents said they hadn't been paying attention to the correct traffic light because two lights are in close proximity, one directing traffic to the freeway onramp.

The Sheriff's Deptartment worked with the city traffic engineers who conferred with Caltrans, which operates the lights, and hoods were recently placed over the set of lights that weren't obvious to some drivers.

Comment: Do you know of any other traffic areas in town that need to be analyzed by city engineers?

This is only a partial fix. The other problem is that these lights are not synched, or are not synched properly. You have the light at Prospect, followed by the 2 light for SR52 on & off-ramps (controlled by CalTrans, infamous for having poorly designed / lighted intersections), followed by the light at Alexander Way. You're most likely going to just get to speed and then have to stop . . . at each light. This is why people are speeding, they don't want to get stuck at 4 lights in less than a mile.
