Traffic Jam Health Risk

AMARILLO -

Traffic jams are more than an annoyance when they pose a health risk.

At peak times at Coulter and Wolflin it can take up to 15 minutes to drive through the light into the hospital district.

And all of that congestion is causing ambulances to have slower response times by anywhere from 3 to 5 minutes.

Frustrated drivers we talked with on Tuesday say the problem is that the light on the traffic heavy side doesn't stay green long enough.

The city promises to look into the issue.
