I have been trying to get a few more red lights installed on our main street in Zachary for a long time now, but all I get is excuses, excuses, excuses.

Meanwhile, the folks entering or exiting Main Street have to put their lives in danger every day, all day long on this main street because of the extreme danger of entering or exiting our Main Street!

I feel a few more red lights will create gaps in the traffic to allow other traffic to enter or exit Main Street without endangering our lives!

I don’t think this request from our mayor of Zachary is too much when considering the safety of our people!
