Commuters are forced to fight morning traffic | Letters

The one thing all of the people of Federal Way want is to fix the things they see wrong with their city.

Take a simple problem that almost anyone that drives to work before 9 a.m. is forced to deal with and is helpless to combat it. That the stores of The Commons are closed before 10 a.m., but anyone on 320th Street at 5 a.m. sits and waits for the lights to change all the way down to Interstate 5. The lights automatically change, even though no cars or few cars are waiting at the side streets feeding 320th.

Meanwhile, traffic backs up solid all the way back to the Sound.

With such advanced technology that allows cameras to take pictures of these same intersections, you would think one of our hard-working elected officials or public workers would have noticed the same problem.

So next time you drive to Interstate 5 and are sitting at a light on 320th seeing no cross traffic, just remember to ask your elected officials to fix this and let the traffic before 9 a.m. freely flow to the interstate.
