PHOTO: Confusing traffic light on Hazeldean

Here’s a photo from Jeff Quigley of an indecisive traffic light at Hazeldean and Iber Roads last Saturday.

We sent the city a quick email to ask what happened, here’s their reply: “3-1-1 received a call from Ottawa Police at 12:07 p.m. about a malfunctioning traffic signal light at the intersection of Huntmar and Iber roads. A controller technologist was dispatched to investigate. The technologist discovered a malfunction in some of the controller’s internal hardware components. Emergency repairs were completed by (3:30 p.m.).”

Of course, remember that any time a traffic light is not working, treat the intersection an all-way stop.
