We are requesting to get a traffic signal at Cabell Dr and Belt Line Road junction at Irving TX.

  1. It took good amount of time for the Cabell Dr. to get constructed.
  2. We witnessed almost 10+ months of road closing and almost 3 miles of extra miles just because the road were closed. Total waste of gas and time.
  3. Now that it is open for around a month - another issue - there is no signal for Cabell Dr. when entering or exiting BeltLine Rd.
  4. Please make a visit at this junction(to experience it on your own) during rush hours(7:30 am to 9:30 am) and then from 3:30 pm to 7:30 pm - it's almost impossible to make a left turn(to Belt Line Rd from Cabell Dr)
  5. This is great inconvenience and myself/others are facing danger when making a left turn. One has to look for the ongoing traffic from both the sides. Good number of drivers are driving very fast and not willing to let folks coming down from Cabell Dr to make a turn.
  6. I have witnessed - almost accident kind of situation due to this.
  7. There are around 800+ families living there. Good amount of kids ride bike and first time drivers(at age 16) - we can't risk their life. In fact we can't risk anybody's life.
  8. School Bus drivers are also complaining about not having the traffic signal.
  9. This is despite of the fact that Parkside residents are paying hefty property taxes, PID and HOA and deprived of these basic amenities.
  10. Please refer to the youtube video. It's been taken on 8th Nov 2018 at around 5:57 PM. This Ryder truck took at least around 7.5 minutes to make a left turn from Cabell Dr to Belt Line Rd. One can observe the chaos during that time.
  11. As it take a lot of wait time and finally making a left into Cabell Dr. from the Belt Line Rd - residents are driving at a very fast speed of more than prescribed 40 MPH just to compensate the lost time at the junction(Cabell Dr and Belt Line Rd). This is too dangerous trend as kids/adults/seniors are walking on the unpaved road.

Who will be responsible for any accident if that occurs due to no signal? Are you waiting for an accident to happen and then only do something?

Please act before it's too late
