Rather than short yellows, which cause drivers to jam on brakes resulting in rear-end collisionsRead Moreand trapping more folks with the cameras, the City of St. Petersburg should adopt a traffic light system that is utilized in many communities and which will serve better to prevent accidents, which is what the last council claimed was its goal. That design is a few moments of red light in all directions before any one direction turns green. It is oftentimes referred to as a "delayed green." Two former assistant city attorneys, Pam Cichon and Kim Jackson, defended the City a year or so ago in a trial where a driver proceeded forward on a green light and plowed into the side of an unmarked van driven by a police officer who said he entered the wide, busy intersection on a yellow. The other driver did not look before accelerating into the intersection when his light turned green. The city's two former attorneys won this case for the City (against Morgan and Morgan), but the accident and resulting injuries to the driver would likely have been avoided entirely IF the driver had a delayed green and there had been a moment of red for both the driver and the officer.
