Traffic lights needed

To the Editor:Given the traffic and accidents on Martha’s Vineyard due to increased traffic in the summer, I do not understand why traffic lights are not installed. This is particularly true in places like the intersection of Five Corners in Vineyard haven, intersection of State and Old County Roads in West Tisbury, and the Vineyard Haven/Edgartown Road at the flashing light.

Traffic lights provide safe traffic movement and do not spoil the beauty of the Vineyard. It could save lives and prevent accidents.
