Why the most requested traffic light location has no light...auditions for a theater performance
Release Date: May 13, 2013

Almost every week a resident of Greenburgh contacts me suggesting a traffic light at the intersection of Ardsley Road/Sprain Road. I recently asked the police chief for an explanation why there is no light at this location.


This intersection has got to be the most desired spot for a traffic light. Unfortunately, it is probably the least suited for one. Because of the curve and decline on Ardsley Road as vehicles approach the intersection with Sprain Road, a red traffic signal would cause many more traffic accidents in the form of rear-end collisions than we currently have now, which fortunately is very few. Add inclement weather to the mix and it would be even worse. Likewise, a flashing red/yellow light in the intersection may cause some drivers to brake suddenly, thinking there is a traffic light there about to turn red which can also cause rear-end accidents. Traffic engineers that have evaluated this intersection for developments in the area also agree with this assessment.

Although it is difficult to drive across the intersection at times of high volume, the current warning signs and curves of the road which slow drivers down somewhat seem to be working in keeping accidents low.

Information on Mount Pleasant Community Theatre:
Mount Pleasant Community Theatre (or MPCT) is very excited to be celebrating its 43
rd year of bringing quality musical theater to Westchester County and the surrounding area! MPCT was founded in 1971 by Rose Cremonese Norton. Now in 2013 Rose remains the guiding force behind this theatrical group and as long-time fans of MPCT point out, her productions get better each year. It is not surprising that Michael Iachetta, writing for the Scarsdale Observer said, “When it comes to community theatre, this is as good as it gets.” Each year, Rose takes a group of performers and in approximately four weeks creates a musical production that never fails to delight audiences. It is always interesting to note that many professionals are willing to take part in MPCT productions. Clearly, this is testimony to Rose’s directorial talent and the quality of her shows.
