Dysfunction in Motorists Creates so-called Malfunction Junction

November 14, 2014

Welcome to Brattleboro, Vermont, where this one ridiculous looking intersection is the bane of most motorists’ existence. They call it malfunction junction. But this guy was on the scene to tell you it has nothing to do with the timers on the lights, or the intersectin itself, as confusing and awful looking as it is. For years and years people were driving through here and nobody on any side had lights to stop for. It was awful, it was hard to navigate, and it was quite simply, a problem. So the town ultimately got fed up with the complaints and installed lights at least a few years ago at this point. But the complaints continued. Some say it got worse, but I say it’s about the same, plus a little better because now you’re less likely to get in a collision with another motorist that doesn’t have to stop or slow down from his direction either. So here’s the shocking truth: this junction is still malfunctioning, because people still this many years on, refuse to acknowledge that there are now lights here. You know how many near misses I’ve had with people running red lights that are in traffic coming towards me? A lot. And that’s all I have to say. Learn how to drive losers!!
