Everett Transit bus bulbs
Story omits traffic blockage risk

To the Editor:
Your story of the bus bulbs to be installed in Everett (April 6 Tribune) I believe overlooked one important point. Although they may cut down on accidents when re-entering the traffic lane, what you did not mention is that if they will now be stopping in the outside traffic lane they will be in fact blocking traffic behind them. There are times during the day when both north and south bound lanes are crowded and as how the bulbs will be located at intersections it is a given there will be times when traffic gets caught backed up in the intersection and possibly against a red light.
